This guide is intended to assist those engaged in designing new in-country workforce development programs. Workforce development refers to programs and policies that promote the mastery of new job-related knowledge and skills, access to employment opportunities, and real jobs. Workforce development programs can help support a range of strategic objectives–from enhancing economic growth to helping with the rebuilding efforts of post-conflict countries. A well-designed workforce development program meets the education, training, and employment-related needs of a targeted group of learners.
