Individual programs:


(1) SIINC for Vocational Skills Development

Starting in 2019, we are looking to provide SIINC to impact enterprises in Latin America and the Caribbean focused on VOCATIONAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT (VSD) and preparing to raise investment. In particular, we are looking for training providers that develop technical, social, professional or/and personal skills and qualifications that contribute to sustainable long- term integration of trained people in the world of work or workforce in the area of Vocational and/or technical education and training.
