The project will enhance the physical and learning environment of selected schools, support school management and leadership in improving delivery of SHS education, provide information and communication technology (ICT) equipment and materials for more effective teaching and learning, and support training of SHS teachers.
The project will help the Meghalaya State Skill Development Society (MSSDS) catalyze market-responsive skills training programs in line with the priorities laid down by the Meghalaya State Employment Promotion Council (MSEPC). Since many of the school children in Meghalaya are first-generation learners, the project will establish an effective student counseling and guidance mechanism to persuade SHS students (boys and girls) to complete schooling, acquire soft skills critical for employment, and inform them about the available vocational training options and the corresponding opportunities.
The project will also provide technical support to implement project activities and build capacity; undertake skills-gap analysis and tracer studies to track the results of skills training and learning reforms. All these activities will be achieved thorough following four outputs of the project.
