The project structural strengthening of employment promotion and vocational training and apprenticeship aims to strengthen the capacities of the Ministry of Labour (MoLAR) and its subordinate institutions for the coordination of employment promotion and vocational training; especially in the fields of labour market monitoring, social dialogue, as well as the participative vocational training in line with the needs of the private sector. It further aims to support selected business membership organisations as well as youth and women associations to improve their service provision due to improved expertise and methodological competency. The representatives of those institutions would be empowered to voice the needs of their constituencies regarding vocational training provision and employment promotion thus enabling the MoLAR and the Supreme Council for Vocational Training and Apprenticeship (SCVTA) to gear their policies accordingly. The enhanced cooperation will be utilised in creation of new occupational standards used in training and in recognition of prior learning. Lastly, the project put its focus on the improvement of “entrepreneurial ecosystem” by establishing a start-up centre with attached workshops serving young women and men with vocational training background. Concepts for new incubation programmes for a production-oriented business, for women-led businesses, and for companies in the green and social sector shall be implemented on a pilot basis.
