5. Strengthen Training and Instruction for the World of Work


This line of action proposes to contribute to the process of cataloguing and evaluating the outcomes of innovations in employment-related education. The proposed line of action will include the assessments of successful innovations and the communication of their results to policy-makers in participating countries. Principal initiatives will include research, evaluation and training related to pilot projects at the local level. Through training, a catalytic role will be assumed in promoting collective leadership, with the joint participation of the educational community, students/trainees and the private sector.

  • Using already established networks and consortia, inform educational policy-makers about the possibilities presented by successful education-for-work innovations, and assist them in translating these project results into regional policies.
  • Train specialists in project design, execution, evaluation and research, targeting the field of educational innovations linked to productive employment, including the rural sector.
  • Conduct evaluation research regarding relevant education for work projects which seek to promote the development of basic learning skills through production and employment. The proposal will incorporate a special focus on young out-of-school adults seeking their first jobs.
  • Support systematic mechanisms for the exchange of technical information and expertise concerning certification, in-service and competency-based training and other innovations in the field of employment-related education, among them, publication of the Revista Interamericana de Educación de Adultos.
