Guidance note 13

Graduation and Exits from Public Employment Programmes

The objective of this note is to give policy-makers and practitioners an overview of various approaches to exiting and graduating from public employment programme (PEP) and to address some of the key issues that one needs to keep in mind in designing a programme with a proper strategy. The guidance note also provides some ideas on determining the right strategy based on the nature of the PEP (i.e. short- and long-term, emergency response, etc.) and will highlight the role of complementary programmes that can support graduation and how they can be better linked to PEPs.
