Youth unemployment – even among educated youth – is very high in many developing countries. At the same time, businesses often cannot fi nd skilled staff. To close this skillsgap, vocational training curricula and labour market demands must be aligned, while youth should have the opportunity to develop and practice skills in a supportive working environment.
EDUworks facilitates work-based learning opportunities. We connect individual employers and youth, and develop and mentor quality training on the job. We identify relevant trades and skills, and build solid curricula in close cooperation with the market players. Edukans provides training and guidance to the employer, monitors the learning environment and outcomes, and adds soft skills where necessary. We make sure both apprentice and master are well-equipped to close the labour market gap.
