Detailed description of project Back
The Skills Enhancement Project is part of the government’s response for supporting life-long-learning and reducing social inequality across the 76 provinces of Thailand. The specific purpose of the project is to provide those who have completed compulsory schooling with the opportunity to access 3 to 6 months of basic skills training. The thinking behind the project is that it would provide young people with the necessary competencies to enter the labour market and to earn a higher wage of between 400 to 450 Baht per day. This would improve the quality of their life, enabling them to support their family.

Initial anecdotal evidence shows that some of the youth participating on the project have obtained skills and managed to find employment, but the project is experiencing difficulties attracting young people onto the project and a significant proportion of those who participate drop-out before completing their training.
Therefore, a rapid assessment is required to assess the relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of the project, and to offer lessons and recommendations for moving forward.
