The Impact Of Skills Training Programme On Employment Creation And Income Generation: A Study In The Central Province Of Zambia

Abstract: 

The government of Zambia has a vision to make the country one of the prosperous middle income countries by 2030. It has been implementing national development plans to this effect. The economy has recorded impressive growth over recent years. Nothing that this growth has not been translated into-broad based wealth and employment creation; government enacted Community Development Policy and has undertaken various community empowerment measures including skill trainings to help eradicate poverty among the disadvantaged groups of the society. This paper aims at assessing the impact of the training program on the creation of job opportunities and changes of welfare of the target groups with the motive to suggest policy ideas for further intervention. This program has enabled most of the beneficiaries to get employment, generate income, improve their food security status and improve wellbeing in different dimensions of welfare. Thus, this program should continue and replicated to a larger section of the society so that the rapid growth in the economy would become broad based and all inclusive
