Case Study

Capacity Building for Technical Training in the Turkish Automotive Industry with EBRD

This project focused on delivering business solutions for the automotive sector in Turkey within the framework of national vocational policy, and promoting inclusive employment practices to improve the training into employment transition.

Skills Solution

Due to generational changes in young people’s aspirations and the low reputation of vocational training and jobs, the recruitment and retention of youth to traditional bluecollar roles in Turkey is proving to be ever more difficult. Improving the transition from training into employment across the automotive sector is key to attracting and retaining young people.

Supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the project had significant potential to contribute to inclusive growth by setting a precedent and creating a strong impact within the sector in terms of improved technical training standards, implementation and capacity and links to local schools and work-based opportunities.
