The purpose of the skills measurement survey is to better understand the interplay between skills of the graduates on one hand and their employability and productively on the other. The survey will employ survey instruments tailored to collect high quality data on the TVET skills required at the Vocational Certificate (CQF Level 1), and at C1, C2 and C3 levels (CQF levels 2, 3 and 4) as well as the competencies of the graduates of CQF levels 1 – 4, to identify the mismatch between the demand and supply of skilled labour, and give recommendations on addressing this mismatch, and to evaluate the project performance on access, quality, and relevance of the training programs (students and instructor) and assessment and certification system.
The objective of this survey is to be achieved by interviewing CQF level 1 through 4 graduates already employed as well as their employers and analyze the collected data in order to identify the mismatch of skills of the graduates and the skills required by the industries. It will provide policy-relevant data to enable a better understanding of skill requirements in the labor market, backward linkages between skills acquisition and educational achievement, personality, and social background, and forward linkages between skills acquisition and living standards, reductions in inequality and poverty, social inclusion, and economic growth.
The survey will focus on CQF level 1 through 4 graduates in the four selected priority sectors such as manufacturing, automotive, electrical and construction sectors between academic year 2017-2018, 2018-209 and 2019-2020 from the selected public TVET institutions and who are working in industries/priority sectors.
