|Vacancy Announcement for Mentors from TTIs|
|The Ministry of Education (MoE) with the support of Asian Development Bank (ADB) is currently piloting a career mentoring program for about 2,000 students in grade XI to XII. The goal is to encourage the right persons to enroll in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutes after school graduation.
In order to conduct the program, MoE intends to select 200 mentors from all TTIs and recent TTI graduates. The selected mentors will be trained by Counsellors under MoE for about five days tentatively during 16-20 September 2021.
The mentors will provide advice and guidance to grade XI and XII students (mentees) to support their progression and achievement of those students. This may include academic and/or pastoral issues and may require an awareness of and liaison with additional student support services provided by the schools. Most importantly, the grade XI and XII students should grow their interest in pursuing the TVET courses.
Mentors will communicate with mentees on a one-to-one basis, to discuss with them their plans after completing secondary school. The session could be in person and online. Apart from official meeting, mentors and mentees are encouraged to communicate frequently using other means of communication such as social media or via text messages.
As a token of appreciation for the time and effort, each mentor will be provided a lumpsum amount of Nu 6,000 (Ngultrum Six Thousand Only) after fulfilling all the required tasks. Other incidental costs related to travel, phone calls and internet data will be reimbursed.
