Skills Development Fund II

The Priority Skills for Growth program (PSG) has been initiated through a partnership   agreement between World Bank and government of Rwanda to support the implementation of NEP through a Program for Results (PforR) financing model. The program results areas include (i) reinforcing governance of the skills development system, (ii) ensuring provision of quality training programs with market relevance, (iii) expanding opportunities for continuous upgrading of job-relevant skills for sustained employability; and (iv) capacity building for implementation.

The major components of PSG include Skills Development Fund II whose objective is to minimize skills gaps experienced by private business operators by rapidly increasing the supply of skills in high demand in the labour market and to ease the entry of new entrants to the labour market by providing them with labour market-relevant skills.
