Skills development for productive citizenship

There is growing recognition among national and local government as well as private stakeholders that a human capital with professional knowledge and well-developed skills is an essential element for productive employment, sustainable socio-economic development, and a more productive citizenship. Hence, there is increasing emphasis on the need to reform and to strengthen human resources via enhancing technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems and developping customized qualification frameworks for creating skills systems that match with specific occupational profiles and standards.
