Detailed description of project Back
Seychelles is a small island developing state and following a comprehensive reform program that the Government began in 2008, the Seychelles has experienced positive GDP growth rates. However the Government has recognized that capacity constraints in human resources pose a challenge to the sustained medium-term and long term growth in the Seychelles. Currently, the needs for qualified and competent human resources to achieve the targeted objectives for continuous economic development are not fulfilled. The central prerequisite for achieving such an ambition largely depends on the country’s vision, strategic priorities and is intimately linked to a human resources base that is dynamic, multi and highly skilled, responsive and proactive.
The government has strategically invested in education and training. However, it needs to address specific gaps of skills and expertise, particularly at managerial, professional and technical level, which have resulted in an increase in expatriate employment. Because of this concern and the relevance of human resource development to economic growth the Agency for National Human Resource Development (ANHRD) is preparing a Human Resources Development Strategy.
The overall objective of the assignment is to develop a national Human Resources Development (HRD) strategy in order to transform the knowledge and skills base, diversify the economy and address the skills and expertise gaps.
