GWIT/Cyprus Workforce Initiative for Skills and Education (WISE)

The goal of the Workforce Initiative for Skills and Education (WISE) Project was to further support economic development in the Turkish Cypriot Community (TCC) by improving workforce development systems so that they would serve as a bridge between education and the economy.

WISE strategy for achieving this goal focused on four project objectives: 1. Strengthening the pedagogical skills of vocational / technical education teachers 2. Building stronger linkages between the private sector and education and training providers 3. Developing new curriculum suplements focused on core employability skills and career awareness with capacity building of career counselors 4. Increasing community awareness about careers in vocational / technical occupations.
