ICON implemented within the framework of the GIZ Employment Promotion Programme III the activity ‘TVET Occupational Analysis and Curriculum Development’. The goal of the project was to align TVET Curricula with the demands of the labour market, and to provide trainees with competitive and strong knowledge-based, technology-led and demand-driven competencies to improve their employability and to open up a wide range of career pathways for them.
