Skills development for the marginalized and drop-outs

Skills development for the marginalized and drop-outs

TVSD and skills development have been well-established as effective ways to reduce poverty through the empowerment of individuals with economic and social opportunity. However, these opportunities for formal training and employment are often unreachable for individuals from marginalised groups or those who do not complete formal education. For TVSD to be an effective method of sustainable economic development and as a poverty reduction strategy, ways must be found to reach these marginalised groups with relevant training.

NORRAG’s work in this area focuses on knowledge production and collaboration between states and researchers in the global South around new possibilities and methods of reaching marginalised groups with skills development, including the potential of technology and ICT.
