Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The present intervention concerns the Skills for Youth Employability and Social Inclusion (SYE-SS) Project. It aims to increase availability of quality vocational skills needed in the labour market. The project addresses a key issue of human capital development through increased capacity to produce skilled labour force. It will provide affirmative action to the vulnerable youth through provision of pathways to further learning or employment, as well, as providing ‘second chance’ learning opportunities. Its expected outcomes are: i) Improved quality of graduates from Vocational Training Centres, and ii) Improved equity and increased access to formal and non-formal vocational and skills training. The proposed outputs include: i) Increased access to demand driven skills for employability, ii) Promoting equal opportunity, iii) Improved quality and relevance of Vocational Training, and iii) Capacity enhancement for relevant ministries and training institutions. This intervention will ensure strong engagement between the training institutions and the labour market (both private and public sectors) in order to ascertain skills needs and relevance.

The project goal is to contribute to increased availability of quality demand-driven vocational skills. Its specific objectives are: i) Increase supply of relevant vocational skills through providing learning opportunities for vulnerable youth; ii) Provide internships and job placements opportunities for the youth with the private sector through partnership agreements; iii) Promote social cohesion and peace building by mainstreaming human rights, trauma management, and peace building modules in all the training; and, iv) Capacity development of the Ministry of Labour, Public Service and Human Resource Development to improve overall system strengthening and institutional development.

The project direct beneficiaries are 1,000 youth (50 percent female). The beneficiaries will include ex-combatants and persons with disabilities. The beneficiaries will acquire vocational skills in selected trades, access career guidance and counselling services, job placement and industrial internship with private sector companies. About 20 trainers (20 percent female) will benefit from training of trainers.
