Workforce development would provide the impetus for increased labour productivity, through improving the skill base of the youth, addressing on one hand the youth bulge issue and on the other improving industrial output. Both sector-specific and place-based approaches to workforce development would be adopted through NAVTEC and collaboration with provincial technical and vocational training bodies. This would be further supported through a thorough labor market assessment, developing demand-driven curriculum and developing better linkages with the employment market.

 

Comprehensive labor market assessments will be undertaken by the provinces, which would be updated periodically. Due focus would also be given on developing skill standards that can then serve as the basis for quality certification of different qualifications offered by the TEVT institutions. Youth Employment Exchanges would play a vital role in linking the labor force with local, national and international labor markets
