SKY[Skills and Knowledge for Youth] HOME What is SKY project about?
Using the skills assessment sheets developed originally by SKY, we can provide answers to the following questions for relevant industries:
The governments of developing countries have to provide technical and vocational education and training within the limited public budget effectively and efficiently. Therefore, it is of crucial importance to get accurate answers to the following questions: Are there any mismatches between the training and employment?; Are the workers’ skills appropriate for the work they do?; Are the curricula of training institutions appropriate to develop needed types of skills? To be able to answer them, one has to establish the methods of conducting the skills assessment of workers and accurately assess the gaps between the supply and demand sides of the skilled workforce.
One of the major impediments to foreign investments is the availability of a quality workforce on site. Are there good workers with necessary skills? Can we secure a sufficient workforce with necessary skills? Where do we need to start from to train workers on the job? The skills assessment conducted by SKY will help you to find the paths to get the concrete measures to answer these questions.
Pilot studies are conducted in three countries, aimed at standardizing the skills assessment module for application in different countries and industrial sectors
