This session will provide an of the importance of supporting refugees and vulnerable populations with the skills (soft/transitional and technical) to allow them to access dignified livelihoods. These populations are often provided a substandard quality of education, a quality which most of the people who promote these systems for these populations would never accept for their own children. The session will present Na'amal's model of world-class training that provides refugees and vulnerable populations targeted skills so that they can access dignified digital livelihoods. This aligns with Learnlife's model that promotes education that links with the needs of the economy.

Participants will gain insight into the challenges that are faced by underserved populations around access to quality education and how this leads to unemploymenent or underemployment. A new narrative needs to be created whereby the underserved are provided a quality of education that would allow them to be globally competitive with the skills to thrive in the forth industrial revolution.
