Participants in Participatory Occupational Analysis workshop, Honduras, January 2018.

The United States Agency for International Development Honduras Workforce Development Project, Empleando Futuros, is using a Participatory Occupational Analysis methodology to develop youth-targeted, market-driven vocational training curricula. The process includes a two-day workshop co-led by project partner, the National Institute of Professional Training (INFOP), and involves practitioners, supervisors and human resource leaders for the positions for which the training curricula is developed. Workshop participants identify the key knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for persons entering into these positions. INFOP then develops a certified training curricula based on this market-driven guidance. To develop a training curricula for restaurant operators, Empleando Futuros joined with Grupo INTUR, Honduras’ largest fast-food, casual dining and convenience store operator, to bring over 200 years of practical experience to the process including young employees with similar profiles as project beneficiaries.
