The Government’s Skills Sector Development Programme (SSDP) 2014-2020 functioning under this Ministry aims to establish an efficient skills development system to meet labour market demand. The programme is the first sector-wide, medium-term development programme, incorporating several areas of training development efforts. SSDP expects to reorient the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system to focus on increasing gainful employment of the graduates. The programme is focusing on priority areas within the TVET system such as improving quality, relevance, access, recognition for vocational training and supportive policies, systems and structures.
SSDP is funded by the ADB and the World Bank based on Results Based Lending (RBL) modality which the funds are disbursed to the Treasury based on the achievements of agreed Disbursement Linked Indicator (DLI) targets.
