Through the Workforce Improvement and Skills Enhancement (WISE) project, USAID will improve technical secondary education to meet the needs of the job market, benefiting vocational school students and teachers as well as the private sector. The project will establish partnerships between businesses and technical schools in order to understand skills needed for employment – reducing the current skills mismatch, creating a pool of qualified candidates, and linking students with jobs. WISE will also improve the performance of the private sector through in-house training and improved human resource strategies that reduce staff turnover. It will seek to build the capacity of business associations to advocate for policy and regulatory reforms related to labor market efficiency.
