Project Description

According to ADB website, the TA will assist the government to prepare a project eligible for ADB financing in line with government policy and strategies and ADB requirements in terms of technical, financial, economic, institutional, sector policy, and safeguard dimensions, and to provide capacity development and other support to ensure a rapid start-up of the implementation. The design will support the Ministry of Education and Sports (MOES) to establish a format for the school development plans (SDP) to be prepared by school management in close collaboration with companies or community members, and procedures for the stipend scheme to support students from low income families. Given the range of interventions proposed, the project will also require considerable consultation with MOES and stakeholder groups such as employers, business associations, and communities to ensure that investments will be in line with the current and future demand for technical and vocational skills.

This project is associated to a closed project (ADB-42278-012: Strengthening Technical Vocational Education and Training Project).
