OECS (Grenada) Skills for Inclusive Growth Project
The OECS (Grenada) Skills for Inclusive Growth Project was developed to address issues related to youth unemployment and its negative economic and social consequences. The project was implemented over a four year period and ended in September 2013. The objective of the project was to increase the employability of youth through demand driven skills training using the competence-based education and training model in collaboration with employers.
The project comprised of three intermediate outcomes resulting in three components as follows:
- Component 1: Skills training for unemployed youth to increase the job related competences among unemployed youth through the establishment of a competitive training mechanism that supports the financing and delivery of demand driven training.
- Component 2: Establishment of an occupational standards framework to improve the quality and value of training in Grenada and enhance OECS collaboration in training through the adoption of an existing occupational standards framework that is validated locally and recognized regionally.
- Component 3: Institutional strengthening and project management to strengthen institutional capacity to plan, implement and monitor training.
