Skills training and employment linkage
For youth over 16 or who completes Higher Secondary School
Youth who complete their secondary schooling
are either sent to vocational schools for professional technical training or to
general education, depending on their preference. Training for the
Technical SEE level lasts eighteen months which includes six months of
on-the-job training. After completion of the course, the youth are linked
with employment. This ensures that they are safely integrated into society.
With skills in their hands, they can earn enough money and lead a decent
life when they leave the organization. Once they complete the Technical
SEE, they can enroll in a three-year diploma course after two years of work
experience or a four-year engineering course if they are interested.
With the acquired skills, they can also set up
their own business. They can expect to earn $180 to $200 per month, which is
enough to support themselves. Since the program was introduced in 2017, 11
youths have completed training and are financially independent.
