Strengthening TVET in developing countries
Building Skills for Jobs is a programme financed by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aimed at strengthening Technical and Vocational Education and Training in developing countries. The programme is administered by Diku on behalf of Norad.
In spring 2018 it was decided that no further calls will be launched under this programme. Diku's task going forth is to follow up on the nine projects allocated under the two calls, in 2016 and 2017. The projects last for 3–5 years and will all be finalised by 2021 at the latest.
