The approach and methodology are based upon BMZ’s and GIZ’s experience in similar projects and an assessment of the current state of affairs in Nigeria. SKYE promotes the employability of young people via value chains, the establishment of an efficient TVET system, and (German) private sector investments.
Capacity Development and Work
Based on the integrated employment approach, SKYE is improving the employability of Nigerian youth and young adults in the construction and agriculture sectors, and in the occupational field of industrial mechanic. It also seeks to increase the provision of information and advice on opportunities to enter the job market. The programme will lay the institutional foundations for establishing an efficient TVET system in combination with support for cooperative arrangements between government and private sector agencies as a contribution to this. Moreover, SKYE promotes investments by local and German businesses in cooperative TVET.
“Do no Harm” approach
SKYE adheres to the do-no-harm principle for avoiding conflict-escalating effects, while paying attention to the heightened potential for escalation of conflict in conflict-sensitive areas of Nigeria. Planning and implementation measures will address all ethnic and religious groups alike in target focal states.
