Vocational education and training can make a decisive contribution to help reduce poverty. The aim is to teach people the required qualifications so that they can take part in economic life, have new possibilities opening up for them and can find gainful employment. At the same time, qualified workers also increase the competitiveness of a company. Vocational training thus makes a direct contribution to poverty reduction as well as social and economic development. In response to the needs of the partner countries, the SDC proposes solutions based primarily on the following orientations:
Labor market integration (employed or self-employed), interventions in selected sectors, access and integration of disadvantaged groups, and development and strengthening of vocational training systems and institutions.
