MAKASSAR (ILO News): The International Labour Organization (ILO), in collaboration with the Ministry of National Education (MoNE) will hold a five-day Training of Trainers (ToT) on 4 in 1 Training Handbook from 13 – 17 December 2010 in Balai Pengembangan Pendidikan Non Formal dan Informal (BPPNFI) Regional V in Makassar, South Sulawesi.
This training is based on lessons learnt from the ILO Education and Skills Training Programme (ILO EAST) and proposes practical ways to design and implement training that leads to jobs. So far, 74 per cent of the youths trained by the ILO EAST project since 2008 are either employed or started a business.
The ToT is jointly conducted by the ILO’s Education and Skills Training for Youth Employment (ILO-EAST) and the Directorate General of Non-formal and Informal Education (PNFI) of MoNe. It will be officially opened by Dr. Hamid Muhammad, Phd, Director General of Non-formal and Informal Education, Ministry of National Education, and Peter van Rooij, Country Director of the ILO in Indonesia.
The handbook is designed to enable non formal training providers to effectively implement competency-based trainings based on labour market requirements that, in turn, will lead to certification and employment.
Moreover, at the community level, the handbook provides a step-by-step guidance for managers and instructors in Community Learning Centers to assess demand for skills, design and implement a competency-based vocational training programme and link it with entrepreneurship training, as well as ensure that the trainees benefit from the certification and from the after training support.
According to Peter van Rooij, Country Director of the ILO for Indonesia, the ToT plays an important role to contribute to the implementation of the ILO Recommendation No. 195 concerning Human Resource Development and to provide vocational training to out of school youths. “The ILO supports the efforts taken by the Government of Indonesia through the Ministry of National Education to facilitate lifelong learning and employability as part of the policy measures designed to create decent jobs as well as to achieve sustainable economic and social development,” he said.
The ToT will be attended by 35 participants from regional training centers under Directorate General Non-formal and In-formal Education coming from eight regional offices across Indonesia: Medan, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya, Makassar, Banjarbaru, Mataram and Jayapura. In the long run, the ToT is expected to develop long-term competent and skilled trainers at all levels.
