TECHNICAL VOCATIONAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT(TVSD) - DIGITAL SKILLS AND YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Youth employment has become a top priority policy concern across countries and regions.This results in part from the fact that the 15-25 age cohort is increasing and many young people have little or no technology-driven relevant skills and are therefore largely excluded from productive economic and social life.
Moreover, policy makers are increasingly recognizing the importance of the need to develop strategies to foster youth employment and self-employment. Such strategies are required to factor in the rapidly evolving labour market and the technological changes that have opened new frontiers, created new jobs, eliminated
others and created new ways of working. ICT is now considered by many governments as a critical component of a responsive, demand-driven Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)/ Technical and Vocational Skills Development (TVSD) system tasked with meeting the needs for learners in formal and other learning environments.
