Skill Development for Youth Employment (SDYE)

Youth employment is a crucial phenomenon as the young population and unemployment rates have been increasing and are among the highest in most of the OIC Member Countries. Skill Development for Youth Employment (SDYE) project has been initiated by SESRIC under the framework of OIC-VET Programme in order to contribute to the solution of the unemployment problem through improving necessary skills for the current labour market. The SDYE project offers an experience and best practice sharing platform to develop effective models to fight against youth unemployment.

In this context, as an initial phase of SDYE Project, a “Study Visit on Skill Development for Youth Employment (SDYE)” was organized by SESRIC in collaboration with the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB), the Ministry of National Education (MoNE), Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MoLSS) of the Republic of Turkey and the Turkish Employment Organisation (ISKUR) on 11-13 January 2012, in Ankara, Turkey. In the study visit, SESRIC received a strong support from the participants and afterwards prepared a road map with the Member Countries which expressed their desire to implement a similar project in their home countries.
