Webinar Resources | Getting Young People into Work: Is There a Role for the Private Sector in Bridging the Skills Gap?

European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD)

Nine out of ten jobs are created by the private sector worldwide, making it a major force for economic growth and prosperity. However, formal education systems are often unable to meet the market’s specific demands for talent and skills. This creates problems on two fronts – young people lack the skills to successfully compete for jobs while firms are unable to fill their open positions. The EBRD’s unique economic inclusion approach supports clients across a wide range of sectors to address this skills mismatch and thereby enhance equitable access to jobs and training. This webinar will discuss the role of the private sector in opening up economic opportunities for young people specifically, and how actors in the YEO space can engage with the private sector to enhance youth inclusion.
