VTESS will be an important vehicle to support the build-up and strengthening of an inclusive vocational education and training system in Laos. The focus will be on the strengthening of the Integrated Vocational and Education Training (IVET) pathway in order to facilitate the school to work transition of early school leavers, to provide them with options for productive employment (wage and self-employment) and the opportunity to enroll in further education and training.
The project pursues to achieve the overall goal of the project through three outcomes:
Outcome 1: The IVET system brings young men and women from disadvantaged groups on a path to become employable or re-enter the education system.
Outcome 2: The employment support system (ESS) brings young men and women from disadvantaged groups who have graduated from IVET courses into employment or self-employment.
Outcome 3: The framework conditions for IVET Training and ESS are strengthened organisationally, institutionally and at systems level with a specific focus on quality and access.
The focus will be IVET schools and ESS providers in 5 provinces located in the north, center and the south of the country.
