Problem Statement
Economic empowerment of young people is one of the most effective strategies for reducing poverty all over the world. When young people acquire vocational skills that are market driven, in addition to basic education, they are able to enjoy improved livelihood and contribute better to the socio-economic needs of society. However, training young people in vocational skills is often very challenging because they learn in varied and unique ways. Also, they are often not very clear about their career paths at this stage of their life and therefore not properly settle on the vocational skills to acquire. As such, if not well designed and implemented, skills training interventions may fail to achieve the expected impact.

For skills training to be successful, the design and implementation must consider the following:
• Inputs from young people on their interest and preferences
• Training approach that engages the young people actively
• Skills that are marketable or market driven
• Skills that are easy to practice and able to generate good returns in the short-term
When a training programme is developed with focus on the appropriate issues, the rate of adoption of skills and the benefits to young people are likely to be higher.

Against this background, training for young people must be properly planned and implemented. The appropriate methodologies must be engaged in imparting the knowledge and skills. This is the concept that underlie a successful training delivery.
