Project Background

ITC - The International Trade Centre (ITC) is a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, focusing on developing the export capabilities of small and medium-sized businesses in developing and transition economies. ITC is 100% "Aid for Trade", supporting trade that delivers inclusive and sustainable development results.

In close collaboration with the Government of the Republic of The Gambia, ITC is implementing a number of private sector development initiatives in The Gambia including the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP), SheTrades Gambia, initiatives under the UN Peacebuilding fund aimed at economic development and social cohesion, and the Jobs Skills and Finance (JSF) Project implemented in collaboration with the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF). 


The skills gaps assessment 2019 indicates that there is a significant mismatch between the training programs and the labor market demands and as such trainees find it difficult to get into the labor markets. This stems from the curricula used by the training institutions to train young people for the job market. Most often the curricula are outdated, not addressing labour market needs and or not competency base.

To foster the linkage between training institutions and employers in general, and to train according to the needs of the labour market and translate the results of the labour market data into relevant training programs. ITC has invested in the development and upgrading of twelve curricula which were validated in December 2021.To ensure the effective delivery of the curricula, ITC will support training of trainers for 10 teachers selected from various TVET centres across the Country.
