Skills for a resilient workforce programme

The government-sponsored skills for a resilient workforce programme supports industry in addressing the sudden demand for technical employees following the departure of many foreign workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme aims to train 2,400 Maldivian youths in various technical areas in tourism, transport, construction, ICT, fisheries and agriculture, and other sectors.

All participants under 35 and unemployed are provided a stipend of approximately US$130 per month during the maximum six-month training period. The programmes offered under this initiative are based on the National Competency Standards, and those who successfully complete the assessment conducted by Maldives National Skills Development Authority are awarded a Level 3 National Certificate. All participants are then registered in the employment portal, which is maintained by the Ministry of Economic Development.
