Target Population is the group of people identified as in need of the targeted campaign. For example, if a particular part of a country experiences a high rate of human trafficking or seen as vulnerable to trafficking. Note: Different language can be used such as vulnerable population or at-risk group. However, the meaning should remain the same.
Job-Readiness Skills-Set are the set of skills that the targeted person has gained (e.g., accounting, hairdressing, cooking, driving, foreign language, business startup, etc.) to be ready for employment or income generating activities. These skills should contribute to new economic opportunities. The term “job readiness” does not have to mean the person is in a formal employment setting, but should be ready to work the are of training/education. The skills-training activities can include class- or field-based training.
Desired refers to the targeted group and participants in the training that have expressed their interest in acquiring the skills, and the training was developed or accessed with these needs in mind, indicating participation in the decision-making process. The skill building activities should also be based on market research and an understanding of preferences, rather than just selecting random skills that may or may not be useful or may overcrowd the local market (see resources below).
