Training for Skills and Employment (T4SE)

Planned project

The main goal of the Training for Skills and Employment project is to create work opportunities for rural youth by strengthening their professional skills as well as advocating for an improved legal framework for Technical, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training in the country. SDC’s contribution aims to support training provision through engaging with the private sector, which will allow young people to acquire marketable[1] skills leading to formal or self-employment and consequently increased productivity.


[1] Marketable skills are those which are in demand and can respond to existing and previously identified market opportunities.
