Summary of publication
The project design document, prepared by the German aid program (GiZ), outlines the complementary areas of activity that will assist the Mongolian government address the challenges in the vocational education and training sector. The sector does not have the capacity to meet current and future demands for trained and skilled workers, particularly in the area of minerals resources which is a significant contributor to Mongolia's economy.
The project aims to improve the delivery of technical and vocational education and training in selected institutions and thus the availability of skilled human resources in Mongolia to support sustainable and inclusive economic growth based on mineral resources. The project seeks to improve the employability of the rural and urban population in Mongolia.
The project is implemented by GiZ with funding contributions also from the Swiss and Australian aid programs. Since June 2014, Australia has funded project activities in the South Gobi province. The training facilities at Dalanzadgad will enter into a twinning partnership with an Australian TAFE institute for advice on technical training. Special attention is paid to the inclusion of students with disabilities, and the inclusion of girls and women in career guidance services and training, since technical training courses at vocational schools are mostly attended by young males.
