Integration of Transferable Skills in Secondary and TVET Education in sub-Saharan Africa

The project aims to produce evidence to inform thinking and policies to incorporate transferable skills into secondary schools and technical and vocational education training (TVET) institutions curricula in selected (case study) countries and other African countries facing similar challenges relating to youth development. For countries where the evidence will lead to action in scaling up incorporation of transferable skills in schools, youth who obtain secondary education will acquire the skills, which will help unleash their full economic potential through improved employability and economic productivity. The ultimate impact of the project is improved macro-level economic productivity, accelerated economic growth, and improved wellbeing of individuals and households to the extent that the economic growth will be inclusive.
