Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) helps young people to learn a trade and enables them to find a job or to start their own business. They therefore get the opportunity to earn a solid income and improve their living conditions.
In the coming years we will increase our knowledge on disability inclusive vocational education and training. The lessons from EmployAble will be translated into a practical guide and Trainer of Trainers Manual, so that the model can be applied elsewhere. We will apply the good practices in other joint programmes, for example in South Sudan, Uganda and Mozambique.
We will also strengthen our relationship with international TVET providers to disseminate the lessons on a wider scale. One of the lessons is that many people with disabilities are not able to meet the admission criteria for formal vocational training programmes, so we will also explore how to promote inclusion in non-formal vocational training.
