EU, Germany support vocational training


The European Union launched a new programme to empower the youth of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa with essential skills demanded by the job market.

The launch event held at the Vocational Training Centre of Excellence in Hayatabad established with previous EU support, marked a significant milestone of the Team Europe Initiative on building back better to support creation of green jobs in K-P province.

Through this programme, the EU and the government of Germany aim to transform the vocational training landscape in K-P through dedicated support to selected VET schools across the province that will be better equipped, have better trained staff and curricula better catered for the demand of the labour market, thus paving the way for economic prosperity and sustainable development.

The EU’s support will particularly focus on improving skills in key sectors such as agribusiness, water, and energy. The new support programme is not just part of the broader Team Europe Initiative involving the EU, France, Germany and Italy to build back better through green jobs creation, but also contributes to the EU’s Global Gateway Initiative in which the EU is trying to leverage public and private sector investments by investing in skills of young people in Pakistan.
