The guide was piloted in Turkey as part of the ILO’s Refugee response programme, and in Kenya, Ethiopia, Jordan and Uganda under the Partnership for improving prospects for forcibly displaced persons and host communities (PROSPECTS). The guide shall be systematically included in TVET curricula and delivery in fragile contexts and be a resource to support skills and employment interventions.
The guide is aimed at TVET practitioners to strengthen their role as active promoters of social cohesion and peaceful co-existence. It helps assist ILO constituents, partners and TVET practitioners to strengthen the role of skills development policies and programmes in peacebuilding efforts through inclusive learning methodologies and the training of relevant core skills. It provides practical guidance to trainers and managers of training centres on how to adapt training delivery to mixed groups, embed conflict resolution skills, cooperation, and other relevant core skills into training curricula, and create conflict sensitive, inclusive, and diverse learning environments for all.
The guide was piloted in Turkey, Kenya, Ethiopia, Jordan and Uganda and shall be systematically included in TVET curricula and delivery in fragile contexts and be a resource to support skills and employment interventions.
