Regional workshop on “Quality Apprenticeships and Work Experience Measures to Improve the School-to-Work Transition”

Young people in Asia and the Pacific remain among the most vulnerable members of society. Not only do they represent 45% of global youth unemployment; but they are also the first victims of discrimination. The ILO seeks to support constituents in their policies and measures to improve and enhance skills and employability of young people through work-based learning systems which prepare young women and men for decent and productive work. The event will be an opportunity to share information, experiences and plans for future involvement toward the provision of quality apprenticeships. These countries to be represented are: Cambodia, China, Fiji, Indonesia and Pakistan. A four (4) member delegation from Pakistan including one member each from Government, Employers, Workers and ILO-Islamabad Office will represent in the workshop.
