SKILL-UP Programme: Upgrading skills for the changing world of work

SKILL-UP Programme is a joint effort of the ILO and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

SKILL-UP Programme is a joint effort of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs aimed to help the ILO Member States enhance their skills systems to take advantage of new opportunities offered by emerging global drivers of change relating to increased digitalization, international trade integration, technological change, large international migration flows, climate change, demographics, among others.

The Programme has global and country components. The SKILL-UP Global’s main outcomes focus on new global products development and innovation; strengthening national skills systems; capacity development, advocacy, knowledge sharing and support to country components. The SKILL-UP Country Projects are located in Ghana, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Malawi, Senegal and Tanzania. They are developed to deliver on three main areas: skills anticipation, skills systems development and social inclusion. Additionally, the Programme supports dialogue between countries of origin and destination in two Sub-Saharan African regions: Western Africa and Central Africa to forge skills partnerships that make migration more demand-led and better informed
