Skills partnership in aeronautical engineering sector with Morocco

The British Council is inviting suitably qualified UK further education colleges or training organisations to apply for the following opportunity.  

The grant recipient will collaborate in an international partnership with peers in Morocco.  

This is an excellent opportunity for a UK-based further education college or training organisation looking to build a network and capacity to work internationally. Successful applicants will be eligible for £25 000 of grant funding to support partnership activities (reciprocal visits to the UK and Morocco, staff time (limited to 30% of the grant), development of tools and resources, etc). 

The selected UK-based skills organisation will collaborate with L'IMA and ISAMLA, specialised institutes in aeronautics and airport logistics, at the heart of the aeronautical ecosystem in Morocco. Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion and the Moroccan Aerospace Industries Association (GIMAS) will be involved as key project stakeholders.   

Partners will share knowledge and expertise in the following areas of aeronautical engineering sector: soft skills development, innovative use of technology in teaching methodologies, and making aeronautical engineering a more attractive career choice for women and girls. The partners will work together to produce action plans for the partnership.

The British Council teams in the UK and in Morocco will provide ongoing advice and guidance throughout the partnership to help facilitate communication and deliver maximum benefit.  

The project will run for a duration of 12 months from the end of September 2024

The call for proposals is part of the British Council’s Going Global Partnerships programme which builds stronger, more inclusive, internationally connected higher education and TVET systems by supporting partnerships between universities, colleges, education policy makers, civil society organisations and industry partners around the world.
