Closing Workshops – Nigeria projects

On 6 and 7 September 2023, VET Toolbox’s partner agency GIZ successfully organised the Closing Workshops of their two VET Toolbox projects implemented in Nigeria. These projects aimed at:

Both projects stemmed from concrete investment opportunities, aiming to foster decent employment and bring about positive change for the local population. We worked closely with the private sector, especially Julius Berger Nigeria PLC (Cashew Nut project) and Glovo (Skills4Riders) to create tailored solutions aligned with EU investment needs.

Key achievements:

  • Trained 444 in cashew farming and processing.
  • Currently training 200 delivery riders until October 2023.
  • Strengthened 8 companies in total.
  • Gathered insights for future initiatives and policies.
  • Forged lasting connections and partnerships between public and private actors such as the Gig Economy Partners Forum, which will drive the standardization of rider training and policies to support the sector, and SKYE (Skills Development for Youth Employment), which is committed to VET reform in the next three years as a continuation of the Cashew Nut project.
