The objective of this project is to improve the quality of vocational education and adapt the courses offered to job seekers to the demands of the labour market. Newly participating sectors actively helping to design training curricula include construction, fowl, sugar, and tourism. Through their participation, they are ensuring the trainings reflect the needs of the labour market.
Project interventions are based on developing professional and technical skills to meet the demands in the specific sectors of production.
In addition to enhancing technical skills, the new competence-oriented training component imparts cross-cutting social and personal skills and methodologies.
Project activities include designing training programmes for prioritised professions in the construction, fowl, sugar, and tourism sectors in accordance with the competence-oriented approach. The course curricula are designed with only the needs of the specific production sectors in mind.
The methodical project approach brings all relevant actors on board from the various sectors of production; their active involvement ensures the training programmes are well thought-out and implemented. This helps increase productivity and employability of the beneficiaries seeking jobs.
Development of 16 skills profiles for selected jobs in the construction, fowl, sugar, and tourism sectors. The definition of specific industry standards serves as the basis for formulating the training curricula.
