This project supported the Government of Cambodia in improving access to, and relevance and quality of, the formal technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system. The key focus of the project was to achieve a market responsive formal TVET system through partnerships with employers and industry. To design the project, a robust participatory process involving all relevant stakeholders was necessary to seek consensus on the scope, coverage and priority reforms to be supported by the project.
In managing this complex project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) on behalf of the Asian Development Bank, Scope Global recruited, contracted and managed a large team of specialists and worked closely with the Cambodian Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training (MOLVT) and Cambodian industry to design a project focussed on strengthening TVET management and delivery systems to produce graduates with skills that match labour market demand. A key project focus was on increasing private sector involvement in TVET. Key outputs included: a situation and gap analysis of the formal TVET system; an analysis of labour market trends and private sector engagement in TVET sector development; cost estimates and a financing plan; an analysis of the project’s financial and economic viability and sustainability; and a Project Administration Manual (PAM).
