Bridging the work skills gap in Africa and Asia

Robert Damian ADAMSON

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


This presentation draws lessons from a comparative study of efforts in African and Asian countries to prepare marginalised youth for the workplace. Using the findings of case studies of specific initiatives in formal and informal education, I will look at the characteristics of effective models in terms of design, implementation, outcomes and sustainability, and will discuss the potential for scaling-up and replication in other contexts.
