Skills and Work

South Africa is full of opportunities for skilled people, so long as the skills developed match industry needs. That’s why we have chosen skills development training as a focus area. We offer accessible, affordable and relevant skills training and match practical training with placements in industry to help people succeed.

When girls, boys, women and men are empowered with skills they need for working life, they thrive. They can support themselves, their families and communities.

However, one-third of the world’s 1.8 billion young people are currently neither in employment, education or training. Of the 1 billion more youth that will enter the job market in the next decade, only 40% are expected to be able to get jobs that currently exist.

The global economy will need to create 600 million jobs over the next 10 years to keep pace with projected youth employment rates. It’s clear that youth unemployment is an urgent and complex challenge affecting society, the economy and governance globally.

To address these critical issues, IFFFAP is working with governments, international organisations and development organisations to increase and improve young people’s access to financial services, financial literacy and entrepreneurship and employment skills training.

Moreover, South Africa is full of opportunities for skilled people, so long as the skills developed match industry needs. That’s why IFFFAP has chosen skills development training as a focus area. We offer accessible, affordable and relevant skills training and match practical training with placements in industry to help people succeed. Working with out of school youth and other community members, we are training people in:

Girls’ economic empowerment

Girls and young women make up the majority of the world’s 628 million unemployed young people who have neither an education nor vocational training.

Barriers caused by gender inequality and discrimination are preventing girls from going to school and getting the skills they need to access decent work and break out of poverty.

Not only is this unjust, it is a huge waste of potential.
