Preliminary findings on the impact of KYEOP indicate that beneficiaries of the program gained entrepreneurship skills and life skill lessons that were fundamental in aiding them to start their own business. Through the skills learnt one could easily become self-employed thus did not have to rely on employment.
However, a significant number of respondents had not secured employment and those who had were still earning low wages which were not commensurate with their skills. The youths interviewed felt that the programmes did not have plans for transition from Apprenticeship to employment. The respondents complained that the government did not issue them with certificates as anticipated and hence lacked evidence of successful completion.
