During Project Design
During Project Implementation


The Project will improve skills training in the country and will provide well-trained skilled workers for economic and social development. In particular, the Project will rationalize and strengthen the skills training delivery system to meet manpower needs of industry and improve income-generating and employment opportunities for youth, school dropouts and women.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Government's economic reforms require competent and trained skilled personnel to assume productive role. The fragmented and uncoordinated technical and vocational training (TVT) system, with inadequate facilities and outdated curricula, is inefficient to meet skilled manpower needs. There is need to rationalize the TVT system.
