Demand-Driven Training for youth employment programs build job-relevant skills valued by employers and useful for self-employment by offering both pre-employment skills development and some form of on-the- job training.
Creative Associates and IREX presented tools to measure youth self-efficacy and to empower youth in their own learning processes. The self-efficacy tool is designed to be specific yet flexible enough to capture changes in youth across 15 communities in three countries that are exposed to a holistic suite of interventions for violence prevention and workforce development. The self-efficacy measure was identified as useful across programming to reduce youth participation in violence.
Training is one of the main ways that the Nepal government intervenes in the labor market. This descriptive study documents patterns, trends, correlates, and the labor-market effects of formal off-the-job training of youth, based on national household survey data. Training rates in Nepal tend to be higher than in other South Asian countries. Within the country, rates are higher for traditionally advantaged groups. While both short-and long-term training programs are available, most programs are short-term.
