Georgia - Industry-Led Skills and Workforce Development

Metadata Updated: June 25, 2021

The key evaluation questions for the ISWD project evaluation are as follows:

  1. How did the implemented PICG courses compare with the original grant proposals, and what were the reasons for any deviations?
  2. Did trainees enroll in PICG-supported courses and graduate from them at targeted levels?
  3. What were the labor market outcomes (employment and wages) for graduates from PICG-supported courses?
  4. What were employer perceptions of the graduates from the PICG-supported courses, and how did the availability of these graduates affect their hiring and training plans?
  5. Will PICG-supported courses be sustained after the compact?
  6. What are TVET providers' perceptions of the best practices identified and disseminated by the project, to what extent have they adopted them, and what are the main barriers to doing so?
  7. To what extent have the MES and its agencies adopted the policy reforms supported by the project, and what have been the main challenges in doing so?
  8. How and to what extent has the annual TVET conference influenced providers, employers, the MES, and other TVET sector stakeholders?

To answer these questions, we propose a mixed-methods performance evaluation, which will include two studies: (1) a quantitative outcomes study of Activity 1; and (2) a qualitative study assessing all project activities (Activities 1-4). To evaluate the possible effects of Activity 1, the outcomes study will measure the training and labor market outcomes of trainees in PICG-supported courses approximately one year after they graduate and, to the extent possible, compare those outcomes with those of a relevant sample of trainees who attended non-supported courses. The qualitative study will explore implementation of all the project activities, the potential mechanisms driving the results observed in the Activity 1 outcomes study, and the likelihood of sustainability across all ISWD initiatives after the compact ends.
