The publication is intended to be a first step towards generating knowledge on the role of private sector in skills generation for increased inclusiveness and employability. It includes several case studies from Turkey, in which the private sector has created significant added-value through private sector-led or PPP models of skills design and delivery. It elaborates on the lessons-learned from these cases to pave the way for further action and research on how business actors can contribute to skills development, especially for the disadvantaged.
"Best Practices Guidelines and Toolkit on Engaging the Private Sector in Skills Development”, jointly developed by UNDP IICPSD and Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries(SESRIC), will inspire, motivate and mobilize the private sector for its active engagement in skills training for employment. The guidelines and toolkit will help stakeholders to collaborate more closely with companies, chambers of commerce and business associations.
The need to properly equip women with relevant job skills to meet the demands of labour markets today and in the future is urgent.
