Impacts of economic slowdown due to COVID-19 are felt throughout the country at different proportion. Population in rural area have seen their income opportunities further diminished as urban centres consumption slowed down. Women and youth are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 pandemic.
To prepare these vulnerable groups to compete in a more competitive job market during and after COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential to secure the provision of relevant and high-quality training. The Government of Indonesia has put better training provision for all the population as one of their priorities. The government plans to create 2,000 community TVETs (BLK Komunitas) that will serve as community training centres for all, including and especially those located in remote areas. To support the government efforts, the project conducts a pilot project on transformation of BLK Komunitas to enable BLK Komunitas to provide relevant skills training for surrounding population by collaborating with private and public training providers as well as industries.
The project sets out to provide capacity building training for BLK Komunitas’ managers and instructors to strengthen their analytic, negotiation, communication, and training management skills to improve the variety and quality of training offered by their BLK. Taking advantage of increasingly available online training complemented with strategic collaboration with neighbouring BLK UPTP, BLK UPTD, educational institutions, and companies, BLK Komunitas can create a training programme that is attractive and in great demand.
Together with a training provider the project commences the transformation of 2 BLK Komunitas towards professional and independent training provider/facilitator through a series of theoretical and practical training that cover: i) curation, organisation, management, and facilitating blended training (online training at BLK Komunitas, while practical training at BLK UPTP, BLK UPTD, other educational institutions, or companies), ii) training needs analysis of the community and local enterprises and creation a comprehensive training plan including staffing, budgeting, promotion of training, selection of participants, and monitoring and evaluation of participants’ progress, iii) building strategic partnership with companies for practical training and on the job training for their training participants, and iv) piloting at least 2 types of blended training for a total of maximum 40 participants.Report Video
