Tracer study of skills for jobs 2012

Punjab Skills Development Fund (PSDF) commissions vocational training by engaging training service providers (TSPs) through a competitive bidding process. It designs training schemes that allow for quality and cost competition among training providers from different sectors. Skills for Job 2012 (SFJ 2012) was one of the schemes that had been designed by PSDF to expand publicly-subsided and accredited training provision. The first phase of the scheme ran from September 2012 to December 2013 and trained 18,500 individuals. In April 2015, Research Consultants (RCons), a survey firm, was commissioned by PSDF to conduct a tracer of a randomly selected female sample of 685 trainees of SFJ 2012. The trainees were interviewed in person by RCons for collection of data. The study primarily examines the labor market outcomes of the trainees under this scheme in four districts of Southern Punjab, namely Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Muzaffargarh and Lodhran. This report presents the findings of the tracer study.
