Workforce Development

Fostering the development of market relevant skills and capabilities is a vital cornerstone that underpins economic growth, hence the need to support current and potential workforce to acquire these skills is essential.

Onward Resources provides market-informed skills development via training and targeted programming capable of propelling forward East Africa to middle income status. Specifically, we carry out research on skills demand and supply, and match them. By partnering with others, we manage projects that bridge capacity and knowledge gaps, through for example, apprenticeships, job shadowing and short-term job placements,  targeted training, including self-discovery and life skills, and professional/job readiness.

We provide strategic advisory to stakeholders; private and public sectors, and we manage projects aimed at building skills of youth and women to enable them participate more effectively in the labour market.
