Cross-government Prosperity Fund
Skills for Prosperity Programme
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-50-PF-09-SKL
The Global Skills programme will invest up to £75 million of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to support nine middle-income countries to address skills shortages in each country that are holding back growth and prosperity. The programme will take a partnership approach and draw on UK expertise to promote sustainable and inclusive growth by improving the affordability, quality, relevance and equity of Higher Education (HE) and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in partner countries. These interventions will help improve efficiencies in the labour market, helping people find better and more secure employment. This in turn will offer a workforce with relevant skills for international, including UK, businesses that are looking to invest abroad. The programme is in alignment with DFID’s Economic Development Strategy (2017) and new Education Policy (2018), as well as with the UK’s commitment, included in the UK Aid Strategy, to continue to prioritise the needs of girls and women.
