World Youth Skills Day 2020 is taking place in a challenging context. Youth unemployment is increasing and is a significant problem faced by developed and developing countries alike. Education and training remain key to the achievement of better youth employment. Training, educational and vocational programmes are expected consider the demands of the current economy and society and help youth develop the skills they need for employment. They will require the capability to successfully adapt to fierce challenges and be resilient to unforeseen disruptions.
At Prodesign, we believe in the potential of our youth and have employed many young engineering graduates throughout the years. With our in-house training programmes, we enable these young people to develop further knowledge in the field of MEP engineering and sustainability. We encourage them to take responsibility within our projects to help them develop their project management and communication skills. We have set up a R&D team comprised of young engineers, tapping into their creativity and encouraging an innovative approach.
As the theme of the year’s celebrate, the key focus is on Skills for a Resilient Youth.
