Vocational Skills Training

WIU has enhanced profitable employment opportunities for refugees and host community youth through skills training and business development support by equipping them with demand-driven vocational and business skills to help them transition into work life or self-employment. Learners are engaged in formal and non-formal training at WIU Vocational Training Centres (VTC), which has enabled them to acquire vocational skills in various disciplines, including motor vehicle mechanics, electrical installation, building and construction, agriculture, woodwork technology, fashion and design, ICT, salon and hairdressing. The training helps young people to convert vocational education into meaningful self-employment through enterprise development. Young people are also provided with start-up kits to enable them create own enterprises and earn some income.
