The lack of qualified young people is creating a bottleneck in the supply of labour in the occupations sought by employers. Nearly half of young workers in Liberia (47.8%) are undereducated for the work they do and do not hold the level of qualifications required for the job1. Through the Action ‘EU Support to Demand-Driven Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for Young People in Liberia’, the EU supports implementation of two dedicated intervention areas for the development of an innovative, demand-driven and sustainable national TVET system. The overall objective is to enable Liberian youth to respond to economic growth opportunities (including green ones) by increasing their employability and entrepreneurship potential through the strengthening of the TVET sector, including development of a demand-driven TVET model by the private sector.

The intervention logic is based on two differentiated but interlinked components:
Component 1 will extend the support to the public formal TVET sector and build on the approach followed by the existing EU-funded Youth Rising project.
Component 2 will address private sector-led, demand-driven TVET provision.

The component 2 is implemented by the GIZ as a Multi Donor Action, jointly co-financed by the European Union and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, described in the present document. The title of component 2 is “Vocational education and training by the private sector in Liberia”. The specific objective of this Action (component 2 of the EU overall Action) is: Strengthening TVET in selected sectors (including related to green economy) through development of a demand-driven model of TVET provision under the leadership of the private sector in Liberia.
