The independent Evaluation will aim to understand which model(s) of skills training best leads to employment and income increases for the target audience by gender, age and poverty in five interconnected areas:

o state versus non state especially in terms of: accessibility, cost, inclusion, quality, market relevance, and employability/wage increase of graduates;;
o skills training with or without special support for young women to attract them to and keep them in education such as: accommodation, separate kitchens and bathrooms, transport, scholarships, mentoring/coaching and childcare;
o skills training on its own vs training with 'wrap around' services such as: access to employment networks, HR support, work placements, and micro enterprise/business development support;
o skills training courses via traditional methods (i.e. limited to moderate community outreach) vs more proactive, inclusive and innovative efforts;
o management / governance systems employed by traditional skills training providers (state and civil society) vs those of the private sector and foundations.
