Competency Based Training

Competency Based Training (CBT) improves the continuous involvement of the private sector in the design, implementation and evaluation of skills programmes. A CBT approach goes beyond the simple design of competency profiles centred on consultations with the private sector. Rather, CBT fosters the continuous involvement of employers and trade unions in the implementation of a training programme, including the testing and certification stages.

Based on its experience in Iraq, Lebanon, the occupied Palestinian Territory, and a pilot project in Yemen, the ILO is currently finalising a CBT manual for the Arab region as well as building a team of accredited trainers and master trainers to the disseminate the manual.
