Training on Employment Counseling for District Officials in Vientiane Capital, Vientiane, Bolikhamxay, Khammouane, Savannakhet and Champasack Provinces

The Government of Lao PDR is committed to further the development of national Employment Services (ES) to benefit all people in Lao PDR. These commitments are reflected in a series of policy frameworks adopted in recent years like the MOLSW Master Plan (2007-2020), the National Socio-Economic Development Plan (2011-2015), the MOLSW Strategic Plan on Skills Formation and Employment Promotion and other decrees and regulations relating to skills development and employment. In this regard, the ILO has successfully helped establish Employment Service Job Centres (ESJC) in Vientiane Capital, Savannakhet, Champasack, Vientiane, Bolikhamxay and Khammouane provinces. The ESJC has 3 main functions: the provision of employment job brokering services, the collection of labour market information (LMI), and the provision of Advisory and Information Services. To strengthen the services of the ESJC, a series of activities have been planned starting from 24 October - 30 November 2011. This event announcement highlights the remaining activity which is the "Step-down training on employment counselling for district officials in Vientiane Capital, Vientiane, Bolikhamxay, Khammouane, Savannakhet and Champasak provinces" that is scheduled to take place during 14-30 November 2011. More information can be obtained from the attached document and briefed below.
