Skills for Prosperity VFM reviews & capacity building

Location Multi-country

The Project

The Skills for Prosperity (S4P) programme was a global programme funded by UK FCDO. The programme operated across nine countries (Brazil, Mexico, Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines). The programme worked to increase capacity for inclusive economic growth due to increases in labour productivity, which contributes to poverty reduction. The expected outcomes of the programme were improved skill levels, employment rates and productivity of beneficiaries (TVET students or youth between the ages of 16 and 25), particularly for the priority target groups of women, low-income youth and people with disabilities. The Skills for Prosperity programme was focused on working with disadvantaged and marginalised groups, often in geographies with widespread poverty.

LAMP Development provided technical support to the S4P Hub on value for money (VFM). The S4P Hub conducted technical advisory services and programme management services to the nine country Programme Managers, and sometimes also to the Delivery Partners. LAMP developed the capacity of the country programmes on VFM and also conducted the VFM reviews.
