A call for proposals for a service provider to develop a platform

TERMS OF REFERENCE: Minimum viable product platform development

JET Education Services and the Fibre Processing and Manufacturing Sector Education and Training Authority (FP&M SETA), together with the Skills Branch of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), are collaborating to improve the coordination between the 50 Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Colleges and 21 Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETAs). The SETAs are responsible for managing and creating learnerships, internships, work-based skills programmes and apprenticeships for TVET college students. Through this process, Coordinating SETA-TVET Offices (CSTOs) are being set up to facilitate meaningful exposure of college students to workplace-based experience so that they can complete the practical components of their programmes. In turn, this increases their chances of securing sustainable employment opportunities.

While the CSTO process has a strong focus on physical infrastructure and human resources, it has been acknowledged that a technological solution could make an important contribution to the overall process. The work outlined in this TOR is a first step towards developing a minimum viable product (MVP) platform as part of the broader CSTO approach.

The service provider is required to develop an interactive online platform using open source software that will be cloud-hosted. An important requirement is that the final MVP should have no license fees and must be able to be hosted independently from the servers of the appointed service provider. Download ToR.

Proposals must be submitted to Raymond Matlala raymond@jet.org.za no later than 28 November 2020, 17h00.
