Guide to Job-Seeker Skills Certificate Programme

Based on an intervention tested by Carranza, Garlick, Orkin and Rankin (2020), this step-by-step guide offers actors within government agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), donor agencies, and other institutions a flexible framework for delivering a skills certificate programme to improve earnings for young job-seekers based in a developing country setting. 

This handbook offers an overview of this programme developed and tested by researchers, provides a framework on how to approach programme delivery, and includes practical templates to aid implementers.
