The Skills Development Facility is part of the Uganda Skills Development Project (USDP) under Component 3 and is implemented by Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU) on behalf of Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development. It is a facility for support to employer-led short-term training and recognition of prior learning as well as increased access to internships for TVET students. The economic benefit of this type of training has proved to be substantial in terms of wage growth and labor productivity. The training, which is co-financed by the private sector through a matching grant contribution, will stimulate partnerships between firms, industry associations and training institutions. It will also increase the mobility of the labor force by strengthening of the mechanisms for recognition of skills acquired through formal and informal skills training.
