The Skills Development Programme (SDP) aims at increasing the income and employment opportunities for disadvantaged young women and men. The programme aims to increase income and employment opportunities for young women and men in three rural provinces of Cambodia: Preah Vihear, Stung Treng and Kratie. The general objective of this consultancy is to understand the supply and demand for jobs in the labour market in target provinces which are accessible to disadvantaged individuals, and how access to these occupations would be facilitated through training courses offered through the Swisscontact Skills Development Programme (SDP), which is currently planning for a second phase (2020-2024).
Angkor Research has directly conducted the literature review, the study design, sample methodology and selection, instrument design (quantitative and qualitative (FGD, Klls), translation and pre-testing, field staff recruitment and training, data collection, data management and quality control, data analysis, and reporting of results. A census of more than 4,000 businesses was conducted in the three provincial towns of Kratie, Stung Treng and Preah Vihear. Out of them, 367 business owners were interviewed with a short quantitative instrument. Six FGDs were conducted with male and female youths. 15 IDI were completed with former SDP graduates and 10 IDIs with vocational training centers in the target areas.
