Project Description

The Private Sector Growth Through Education for Employment (PSG-EFE) program seeks to meet the needs of the Senegalese production sector by developing a qualified workforce, while placing a special focus on improving employment access for women. Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) has partnered with the Ministry of Professional Training, Learning and Crafts (MPTLC) in Senegal to create favourable conditions for entering the workforce and increasing the productivity of the active population, namely by creating stronger links between vocational training institutions and companies in order to provide quality training. The goal is to improve the employability of male and female learners by aligning training with the needs of the private sector.
