Governance of skills development systems

Meaningful tripartite governance is key to the success of any skills development system. Together with other partners like the European Training Foundation, the ILO aims to strengthen the governance of skills development systems through a model of competency based human resources which clearly links skills with productivity and wages in the Arab region.

Accordingly, the ILO works to enhance the capacity of social partners on the boards of skills development systems in order to:
  • Improve market relevance of the training programmes;
  • enhance workplace based training systems;
  • evaluate the employment outcomes of training sessions; and
  • assess linkages between recognised competencies and wage levels.
