EFE offers market-responsive training utilizing gold standard curricula and youth-centered, innovative teaching techniques, both online and in-person, to provide youth with the skills necessary to access and succeed in the world of work. EFE has delivered entrepreneurship trainings across MENA for the past ten years. EFE plans to create a new entrepreneurship curriculum utilizing innovative teaching methods and localized content. EFE seeks an experienced instructional designer to work alongside the EFE-Global Education & Training Department to create a fully packaged, 60-hour entrepreneurship curriculum.

Overview of Assignment

Under the guidance of the EFE-Global Education & Training Manager, the consultant will develop instructional design elements for EFE’s entrepreneurship curriculum, including trainer manuals, participant resources, and relevant presentation materials. The content must be developed for in-person and online delivery scenarios, and will total 60 hours of training delivery. The consultant will ensure that all materials are designed in alignment with EFE’s Foundational Standards and Brand Guidelines.

The intended outcome of this curriculum is to offer market-responsive training to support MENA entrepreneurs to launch their first business, focusing on growth orientation and job creation. Content created is intended for use by participants across all countries in EFE’s Network, typically aged 18-35.

Upon the start of the assignment, the consultant will be provided with an initial module structure, learning objectives, and intended outcomes, in addition to the results of a needs assessment and subject matter information. EFE uses an iterative, human-centered design approach to curricula design. As a result, the duration of the assignment will include pilots in Yemen and Palestine to test the curriculum for structure, content appropriateness, and effectiveness of assessments used. The first pilots will be conducted following the completion of the two initial entrepreneurship modules. The subsequent results will be used to revise the existing modules and inform the development of the remaining modules. A second pilot will be conducted once all modules have been developed, and then the consultant will be expected to revise the content with any additional feedback that arises.

Creation of supplementary e-learning materials is outside the scope of this assignment. However, the consultant will be responsible for creating trainer manuals that can be used when the training is delivered in an online or blended format.
