The purpose of this invitation to tender is to conclude two service contracts for the acquisition of services to develop two studies to analyse the costs and results (outputs, outcomes and documented impacts) of financial and non-financial support to individuals and enterprises in undertaking learning activities and developing careers. The scope includes supply and demand side measures and services in the labour market.
Lot 1 addresses mainly supply side interventions, including guidance, validation, assessments/referrals and basic skills training.
Lot 2 addresses mainly demand side measures, including financial incentives (such as grants, tax incentives, levy/grant mechanisms) and non-financial incentives (such as information/advice on funding opportunities, technical support in developing training) to stimulate training in enterprises.It will also cover financial instruments targeted at individuals (such as vouchers, training credits, individual learning accounts) to encourage them to participate in education and training. In the cases where no methodologies have been developed to gather data, the studies will provide methodologies and insights on how to achieve standards for data gathering and analysis.
