Definitions and Design Options: Workforce Initiatives Discussion Paper #1
Academy for Educational Development
Workforce initiatives are about giving people the skills to do their jobs well, about strengthening the institutional infrastructure that provides job services, about positioning labor markets to lead growth and increased investment, and about creating sustainable employment and improved working conditions. Workforce initiatives aim to fill a specific gap in a supply, service, or value chain. They can be as broad as resources allow and address multiple issues. In the end, workforce initiatives contribute to resolving crucial economic and social problems that are caused not only by skills deficits, but also by structural deficiencies. This discussion paper summarizes the information in the AED publication, "International Workforce Initiatives: Definitions, Design Options, and Project Profiles."
