Vocational training programmes will soon start with the aim of increasing decent work opportunities and enabling Turkish citizens and refugees in Istanbul to receive employment services for placement into formal and secure jobs.

The journey of training will take off with “Motor Courier” and “Call Centre Operator” training programmes targeting 1,040 persons through online and physical training modes, with language facilitation for refugees where necessary. Also providing financial support to trainees, the training scheme aims to enable trainees to be self-reliant through their lives.
