Build4Skills aims to improve the integration and therefore available opportunities for technical and vocational education and training in infrastructure project delivery. Build4Skills deploys TVET students to construction sites and trains in-company instructors on didactics, occupational safety and gender sensitivity. The Build4Skills Toolkit is based on the experiences of the cooperation of the project with the Asian Development Bank on infrastructure sites in Mongolia and Pakistan. It derives recommendations on how to implement similar projects elsewhere and like this aims to support MDB’s and other actors to procure their infrastructure projects in a way that contributes to skill and economic development. To do so, it summarizes the Build4skills implementation practice, offers guidance on how Build4Skills can be applied in additional construction projects in the future, and provides an outlook on how this Toolkit and the project’s approach can be further developed. It highlights a delivery framework based on four components to plan and execute a Build4Skills project and two design principles that pervade all four stages.
Lifecycle Phase(s): Project PlanningGeneral strategy for a project’s delivery is developed., ProcurementThe provision of goods and services to realize a project are tendered and closed., ConstructionThe asset is constructed in line with design, budget and timeline.
Type(s) of Tool: GuidelinesOperationalize sustainability principles, less specific than Benchmarks or Rating Systems.
