Decent work gives people perspectives and stabilizes communities that have been fragile due to violence and conflict. To obtain a decent job, people need to have the right skills to find work, carry out the required tasks and stay employed. Skills development plays therefore a major role when it comes to creating sustainable peace and resilience by providing decent livelihoods and perspectives within the community.
Reaching out effectively to individuals whose lives have been disrupted by conflict or disaster requires considerable understanding of the conditions under which education and training is planned and undertaken in the affected communities. Connection to employers, emphasis on quality and relevance of training, and inclusive of all whose livelihoods have been disrupted or destroyed, are crucial elements.
The course provides participants with conceptual framework around skills development for peace and resilience and a range of practical and integrated strategies, approaches, tools, methodologies and case studies used to promote skills development for peace and resilience.
