Technical Educational and Vocational Training (TVET) institutions are key players in the youth employment market system and central to the strategies of governments worldwide to increasing economic opportunities for youth
In 2013, the United Nations projected that Africa would be home to over 40 percent of the global youth population by 2030. The challenge of how to successfully absorb these young people into the formal economy became top of mind for governments, policymakers and development practitioners.
We live in a time of rapid economic, social, and environmental change. No group has a greater stake in the consequences of these global trends than the world’s 1.8 billion young people, the largest youth cohort in history. The majority of today’s youth population—nearly 90 percent—live in developing countries, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
