Social and economic cohesion through vocational education
The project is financed by the EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey (FRIT) through KfW and implemented together with the Ministry of National Education (MoNE), Directorate General TVET. The overall objective of the project is to foster social and economic cohesion of Syrians under temporary protection (SuTPs) and Turkish host communities by improving their employability and qualifications. In particulare the access to inclusive quality vocational education and training for Syrians under Temporary Protection (SuTP) and Turkish adolescents (14-17 years) in trades with a high demand on the labor market has to be increased. A total of 45 Mio Euro will be tendered for school equipment, awareness raising and student support packages. The project assists the Ministry of National Education towards achieving this objective through more equipment in VET institutions to in-crease their absorption capacity, facilitating access to education through the provision of support packages for the target group, and higher awareness among the target group about VET possibilities and strengthening TVET-to-labor market links.
