Jobs in Dar es salaam and Zanzibar at International Labour Organization (ILO)

  Xpresstz       Thursday, September 20, 2018
 
Introduction: The International Labour Organization is devoted to promoting Social Justice and internationally recognized Human and labour rights. Today, the ILO helps advance the creation of decent work and the economic and working conditions that give working people and business people a stake in lasting peace, prosperity and progress. Its tripartite structure provides a unique platform for promoting decent work for all women and men. Its main aims are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.
At the International Labour Conference (ILC) in 2008, it was stressed that education, training, and lifelong learning foster a virtuous circle of higher productivity, more employment of better quality, income growth, and development. Skills development is therefore, an essential prerequisite for sustainable development.


In Tanzania, skills systems and institutions face many challenges including low capacity by TVET institutions to deliver effective and efficient trainings. Many young people are not able to access skills development due to inadequate number of TVET centres, restrictive conditions such as fees, entry qualifications etc. As a result thousands of young people resort to informal apprenticeships as a means for skills acquisitions. For those who receive trainings, often the skills and competency levels do not match labour market requirements hence longer transitions periods and growing unemployment among graduates.

In response, the ILO country office Dar es Salaam is supporting skills development strategies and policy initiatives that promotes employability, reduces transition periods from school to work, promotes training partnerships with companies and enterprises, ensure inclusion of marginalized groups and strengthen capacity of TVET institutions to provide relevant trainings. Support on skills development initiatives is provided through active collaboration and involvement of our social partners (government, Workers and Employers). In particular our strategy is to provide technical assistance in promoting work based trainings programmes such as Quality Apprenticeships including Informal Apprenticeships; strengthen capacity of social partners and training institutions to link skills supply and demand and develop training programmes for rural economic empowerment.
