dc.description.abstractThe empowerment of women and girls through Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) gives them an opportunity to acquire job-related skills for meaningful employment, a key contribution to poverty reduction. Governments are therefore, acting to improve women’s and girls’ enrolment in TVET courses, which have been primarily male-dominated. However, there are multiple barriers to women’s and girls’ access to TVET, including negative attitudes about TVET, financial constraints, and a male-oriented perspective in pedagogy, curricula, and learning materials. Based on lessons from a rapid literature review and COL’s own experience, this policy brief makes recommendations for increasing women’s and girls’ participation rates in employment-related skills training as well as gender-responsive approaches to improve women’s and girls’ retention and success in TVET.en_US
