About FHI 360 - USWDP Project
The Afghanistan University Support and Workforce Development Program (USWDP) is designed to help Afghanistan’s higher education professionals effectively manage the growth of tertiary education while improving academic quality. Building on the successes of the Afghanistan Higher Education Project and other initiatives, the USWDP project will improve the management capacity of the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and up to 10 public universities to ensure quality education and employment for a larger number of Afghan men and women. It will also assist in developing learning environments that foster well qualified and professional faculty members, highly capable and motivated students, diverse and market-oriented academic programs, sustainable public-private collaboration, international university partnerships, and other innovations that move Afghanistan toward the higher education system it deserves.
USWDP seeks eight (8) Interns to implement approximately 640 surveys at four Afghan public universities. The surveys would be administered to graduates of both none-USWDP degree program graduates, and USWDP supported degree program, extracurricular training participants, and graduates who have participated in internships. Study tools will be provided to the interns/data collectors in advance, and the interns will be trained on how to carry out the data collection. The purpose of the training is to ensure the data collectors understand the objectives of the study and fully understand the methodology for administering the surveys.
Surveys will be filled via face to face interaction with 640 specified individuals at Kabul University, Kabul Polytechnic University, Nangarhar University, and Jawzjan University. These universities have ongoing degree programs supported by the USWDP. The administration of these surveys would require an intensive use of the local languages (i.e., Dari or Pashto).
The purpose of the study
The purpose of this evaluation study is to identify the impact of students’ participation in USWDP degree programs including extracurricular activities such as trainings and internships on employment status, duration of job-search, earnings, employment sector and occupation, use of competencies and skills from USWDP participation, and perceptions of the effectiveness of USWDP activities.
The findings from this study, presented in a written and oral form, will be used by USWDP project staff, the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and university personnel, as well as USAID representatives, to make decisions to promote those pre-employment activities that are found to have a positive impact on graduates’ employment status.
Compensation: The Interns will receive a payment of $20 per day and they will be required to complete surveys of four graduates per day. This payment includes compensation for transportation, communication and other incidental expenses.
