Impact Assessment of a Technical Education and Vocational Training Program for Youth
Solutions conducted a qualitative and quantitative survey to evaluate the impact of the ILO’s “Know About Business” KAB curriculum at 40 vocational education and training centres regulated by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Labour. The KAB curriculum targets students, teachers, and trainers at vocational centres, industrial schools and technical colleges.
Solutions tested the impact of the pilot phase of KAB during its implementation in the scholastic year of 2009 – 2010. Solutions reviewed and measured the students’ attitudes towards the program and their level of knowledge about business ideas, establishments, and practices. Furthermore, Solutions developed and implemented a “Listen to your Beneficiaries” methodology and conducted Pre-implementation and Post-implementation surveys for the project.
