General

The employability of youth is increased through better quality of instruction and learning in Skills Development The project supports the implementation of some of the key-reforms of the national BTVET strategy, both on a national/central level, and on the local level, in 4 districts in Western Uganda. It will support and strengthen policy formulation and implementation, it will assist in developing financing instruments and new modalities for training delivery, and it will support a restricted number of training providers in Kasese, Fort Portal, Hoima and Masindi. The project will strive for a close collaboration with Business Membership Organisations and private sector companies on all levels of intervention. The intervention will a.o. provide support to different actors and stakeholders in developing and testing a national Skills Development Fund, and at the same time implement improvement of access and quality in Technical and Vocational Education and Training on the grassroots-level in two of the Western Regions of Uganda, the Rwenzori and Albertine Regions.

The quality of skills development is enhanced and responsive to labour market needs, in four Districts – Kabarole, Hoima, Masindi and Kasese - in Western Uganda in line with the Skilling Uganda reforms.
