Description The Project Preparatory Technical Assistance (PPTA) is intended to design a project that produces TVET graduates with skills that increasingly match the need for highly skilled workers by the current and future job market.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The PPTA is necessary to: (i) review the technical, economic, and financial viability of the program and ascertain the program rationale, scope, cost, schedule, implementation arrangements, risks and mitigation measures; (ii) ensure the compliance with Asian Development Bank' ADB Safeguard Policy Statement (2009) and identify mitigation measures and institutional strengthening; and (iii) assist the program executing/ implementing agency in advance contracting for the ensuing program. The PPTA will help develop an investment program suitable for ADB financing in terms of technical, financial, economic, institutional, and safeguard dimensions.
