Pakistan - Emergency Job Training for Vulnerable Youth Project (English)

Ratings for the Emergency Job Training for Vulnerable Youth Project for Pakistan were as follows: outcomes were moderately satisfactory, risk to development outcome was modest, Bank performance was satisfactory, and Borrower performance was moderately satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: public sector interventions in the training sector should essentially be catalytic in nature to create a participative environment in which the training providers and the employers in tandem can plan and deliver training programs in response to the market forces - the corollary being that public sector training monopolies lead to gross inefficiencies, rapid obsolescence, and rampant un-employability of trained labor. Policy-makers and planners need a greater understanding of the dynamics of job creation and job-related training, if costly labor shortages and surpluses are to be avoided. The expansion of training sector should not be governed by compulsions of social demand for vocational training opportunities but instead by the imperatives of economic demand. Vocational guidance services should be established to inform and educate the people for the purpose of enabling them to make correct choices. Ensuring active involvement of the private sector despite its difficulties: to meet the dual objectives of meeting demand for skills and improving employment outcomes of trainees, it is imperative to involve employers in the planning and implementation stages of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programs and institutions.
