Skills development is a key factor in the employability of workers and the sustainability of enterprises.
National skills development policies and systems strive to meet present and future labour market needs for skills and to improve productivity and competitiveness in the sectors which are critical for the achievement of national employment and development goals. Skills policies and systems encompass technical and vocational training, workplace learning, informal learning, learning opportunities in the informal and rural economies and education and training for lifelong learning. The Centre offers a varied menu of training modules pertaining to these elements.
The training provides participants with a range of integrated approaches, tools and methodologies used in real-life cases to promote employment and decent work for youth in situations of conflict and disaster. Read More
