SDP is structured into four intervention areas, focusing on the Quality Improvement of Provincial Training Centers (PTCs) through a holistic and collaborative school development process; fostering innovative approaches for skills development and developing solutions for underlying problems in the labour market; providing labour market-relevant technical, soft and entrepreneurship skills training for poor and disadvantaged youth and linking beneficiaries to gainful (self) employment; and industry-based hospitality training for low-skilled workers and capacity building for hospitality business owners and managers as well as trainers from Provincial Department of Tourism and the private sector.
Cross-cutting themes such as Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI), Conflict-Sensitive Project Management (CSPM), Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Environmental Protection and Good Governance are mainstreamed into all interventions.INTERVENTION AREA 1: TVET School Development
SDP plays a role as a facilitator to support the TVET school development processes by offering technical assistance and (co-) financing of equipment and tools. A continuous policy dialogue with the governing bodies (MoLVT and NEA) will be held to feed the lessons learned, challenges, and successes into the national system.INTERVENTION AREA 2: TVET Innovation Lab
SDP supports the TVET Innovation Lab to analyse the labour markets needs and constraints, create innovative solutions to enhance training and employment opportunities for unemployed and underemployed youth, pilot the Innovations, disseminate learnings and institutionalise successful approaches.INTERVENTION AREA 3: Training for Disadvantaged Youth
SDP collaborates with public and private training service providers to offer high-quality training to disadvantaged youth and to certify and link them to gainful employment. The training and employment process is explained below:
INTERVENTION AREA 4: Hospitality Kampuchea (HoKa)
- Pre-training: Training offered to disadvantaged youth will be based on actual market demand.
- During Training: All graduates are awarded with a certificate at the end of the market-relevant technical, soft skills and entrepreneurship training, enabling them to prove their qualifications and potentially continue their studies.
- Post-training: Training providers establish relations with the private sector and are informed about vacancies and options for traineeships. Graduates are linked with traineeship and employment opportunities.
HoKa is based on a demand-led and industry-based training model. Owners and managers, and the supervisory staff of hotels, guesthouses, resorts, restaurants, and cafes needing to upgrade their in-house training processes, will support the design of curricula and participate in the capacity building offered by SDP. The (modular) courses will cover technical skills, training didactics and methodology, and hospitality management. Hospitality business owners, managers, and supervisors will have the opportunity to learn about human resources and financial management, contents, and application of the labour law, etc. The training will also include exposure visits to bigger hotels and restaurants and guest speakers from reputable hospitality schools in the country.
