The IECD’s vocational program mainly targets young men and women from 14 to 25 years from poor backgrounds and without any qualifications.
THE FIVE PILLARS FOR IMPLEMENTING TRAINING
It is by strengthening the links between training and the world of business and acting on all the factors that help to adapt teaching to the needs of companies that the IECD helps young people to find employment and facilitates their long-term integration into the economic dynamic of their country.
A TRADE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS TO ENSURE YOUR FUTURE AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR COUNTRY
22% of young people in the world are inactive: they are not in education, employment or training.
3 out of 4 are young girls.
According to the International Labor Organization, “71 million young people aged from 15 to 24 years were unemployed in 2017”. The global estimate for the number of young people who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), a larger category than before, is 21.8%, a large majority of whom are women (76.9%).
The inactivity of young people, who are an intrinsically essential part of the future, prevents the economic development of countries and is also an obstacle for social cohesion and peace.
In order to put a stop to this phenomenon, it is essential to boost the local economy. In developing countries, many sectors are potential vectors for employment but they struggle to find qualified local staff. Training is often the problem. Unadapted to the needs of companies, too theoretical, often undervalued, it is not seen as a solution for youth employment.
