Education & Employment

Youth un- and underemployment continues to be a challenge world-wide. Being a youthful country can be an asset but if the number of youth entering the labour market every year is outstripping economic development social tensions may well be on the rise.

We understand that social and economic development are two sides of the same coin. For promoting youth employment FAKT is providing consultancy services in vocational education and training (VET), youth employment promotion and small and micro enterprise development. We pay special attention to orienting programmes towards achieving better impacts and addressing issues like the reintegration of conflict affected people in war-torn societies. We work in an integrated manner linking sector-focussed consultancy to wider topics like Corporate Social Responsibility and Fair Trade.

FAKT’s long term expertise in vocational education and training (VET) and SME development is complemented by cross-sectoral expertise in areas such as impact assessment and result based monitoring systems, organisational development and training of policy makers, VET managers and trainers.


An advanced training course on Systemic Issues and Appreciative Inquiry took place in April 2017.

Beginning of this year, FAKT organised an international thematic workshop on Social Enterprise and Employment Promotion at 'Haus der Wirtschaft Baden-Württemberg' in Stuttgart.

On October 6th, 2016 FAKT conducted an in-house training for consultants on the analysis of organizations. The first part of the event focused on analyzing the internal logics that play out in different types of organizations.
