Youth in conflict and post-conflict settings require tailored training opportunities and employment services to hone the vocational and soft skills needed to find and retain jobs. How can we assess the vocational and soft skills needs in a conflict and post-conflict context, often characterized by a stagnant or shrinking economy and unstable political and security framework, to be sure we get the training right? This interactive deep dive will use evidence developed through Creative Associates’ experience in Afghanistan and Child Trends' contributions in Nicaragua as a starting point for an exploration of demand-driven training needs assessments.
