(English title: « Support for the provision of an innovative, effective and equitably accessible training offer that meets socio-economic needs in the 8 regions of Niger»)
Niger is facing an unprecedented rise in insecurity, particularly as a result of terrorist groups based in the area. There is a lack of employment opportunities for young people and a very large proportion of whom are reportedly out of work and training. In this context, the integration of young people and their contribution to sustainable economic and social development is a priority for the governments. However, the process of renewing the Nigerien TVET system is far from complete. The capacities of actors at all levels, especially those decentralized in the 8 regions of Niger, need to be strengthened.
The main objective of the project is to develop an innovative training approach that responds to the socio-economic needs of the 8 regions of Niger by :
- Bringing concrete elements to the populations to motivate their choice of a vocational training
- Establishing effective and sustainable regional and national TVET planning that is consistent with international norms and standards and the needs of the economy.
To achieve these objectives, the project will :
- Strengthen the steering capacities of the TVET sub-sector.
- Accompany its evolution towards more de-concentration and decentralization.
- Diversify the initial and continuing training approach while improving access and quality, particularly in the fields necessary for rural development and the socio-economic integration of girls and women.
- Develop a national standardised system of apprenticeship.
Duration: January 2021 - August 2023
