1- Seller: - The Afternoon class for females ending at 4:30 in winter season is too late. Can we make the classes for 3 hours instead to finish the Afternoon class at 4 pm “maximum”? - 280 hours of in-class training for a participants with a class duration of 3.5 hours will finish in 16 weeks “4 months”. If we run 2 classes a day and budget one trainer and one training facility; the entire training exercise will finish in 8 months. This time do not include the initial market assessment, content development, TOT by the WIE international expert, and job seekers’ placement. Please advise, if we should increase the duration of the project to either 12 months or run all four classes in parallel using two trainers and two training facilities? - Also, if we decrease the training class duration from 3.5 hours to 3 hours due to winter season; while females are not allowed to travel in dark, it will further increase the entire training duration by 1.5 months (totaling to 9.3 months). One other way to reducing this could be to hire a little qualified training participants and decrease the number of training hours from 280 to 140. Please advise. - How about running each class for a minimum of 20 participants? This may also help with managing the project duration. - What is the best ratio between theory and practical in-class training work? In other words; how many of the 280 hours should be dedicated to practical in-class assignments “doing dummy translation works”? - We believe that the 6 weeks TOT/mentorship provided by the WIE Expat translation expert to our trainers has to be budgeted “paid by WIE”. Please confirm - Will part time and home based jobs be considered as placement as most of the translation work is done remotely “from home”?    20-Aug-2019 5:03 PM

Buyer: 1. The Afternoon class for females ending at 4:30 in winter season is too late. Can we make the classes for 3 hours instead to finish the Afternoon class at 4 pm “maximum”? The duration of the course of 280 hours and the implementation period of 8 months cannot be changed. Please arrange your schedule to accommodate this. WIE does not see a problem with women taking classes or working until 4:30, as many of our own female staff take after-work classes, lasting until 6 or 7 pm. 2. 280 hours of in-class training for a participants with a class duration of 3.5 hours will finish in 16 weeks “4 months”. If we run 2 classes a day and budget one trainer and one training facility; the entire training exercise will finish in 8 months. This time do not include the initial market assessment, content development, TOT by the WIE international expert, and job seekers’ placement. Please advise, if we should increase the duration of the project to either 12 months or run all four classes in parallel using two trainers and two training facilities? The duration of the course of 280 hours and the implementation period of 8 months cannot be changed. Please arrange your schedule to accommodate this. Furthermore, WIE expects more than one trainer proposed for the 6 (six) mandatory subjects, thus making scheduling of concurrent classes easier. 3. Also, if we decrease the training class duration from 3.5 hours to 3 hours due to winter season; while females are not allowed to travel in dark, it will further increase the entire training duration by 1.5 months (totaling to 9.3 months). One other way to reducing this could be to hire a little qualified training participants and decrease the number of training hours from 280 to 140. Please advise. The duration of the course of 280 hours and the implementation period of 8 months cannot be changed. Please arrange your schedule to accommodate this. 4. How about running each class for a minimum of 20 participants? This may also help with managing the project duration. – Please refer to the RFP, Attachment A: Scope of Work, Schedule and duration, page 21, and arrange the schedule accordingly. 5. What is the best ratio between theory and practical in-class training work? In other words; how many of the 280 hours should be dedicated to practical in-class assignments “doing dummy translation works”? Please refer to the RFP, Attachment A: Scope of Work, page 19: “Participants should be expected to do the majority of practical translation work individually at home, while in-classroom hours should be used for discussions and review of their own and their colleagues’ translation, with proposal of appropriate metalanguage and translation techniques. Participants should also receive sufficient time for individual consultation with the trainers. The training should be geared towards practical translation and exercises, covering theoretical topics only to the degree they are applicable in translation and useful for developing translation skills and competencies. Participants should be aware of and able to recognize the theoretical concepts and apply them in translation but must not be required to reproduce them or know exhaustively. Proposals with more exercises and hands-on translation work will be positively viewed.” 6. We believe that the 6 weeks TOT/mentorship provided by the WIE Expat translation expert to our trainers has to be budgeted “paid by WIE”. Please confirm Confirmed. 7. Will part time and home based jobs be considered as placement as most of the translation work is done remotely “from home”? " Yes.    25-Aug-2019 8:17 AM
