Who We Are and What We Do:

The Skills Gap in Cambodia can render graduates unready and under skilled for the workforce. Employers are unable to find employees with sufficient skills. Institutions, organizations, and companies face its consequences, but are also capable of limiting them.

The members of the IBC Education Working Group are education professionals committed to addressing the skills gap, which deeply impact both employers and young Cambodians.

We believe by examining the pre-employment situation (cause) and the resulting under-skilled work force (symptoms) we can identify practical solutions and assist our members in implementing them.



Our current initiatives include:

  • Closing the Skills Gap Accelerator – with support from the World Economic Forum and the Royal Government of Cambodia, the IBC is taking a lead role in this 3-year initiative. The IBC Education Working Group will be devoting considerable resources to contribute to the success of this initiative and shape the future of skills development and education in Cambodia
  • Pathways 2 Employment – pilot internship and apprenticeship initiative designed to give young Cambodians an opportunity to experience the workplace and learn & apply new skills which will make them more work-ready
  • Teacher Workplace Visit Program – pilot initiative to increase exposure of teachers to real workplaces and use these new insights to develop more relevant learning for their students
  • Regular Education networking and informative events – designed to build more connections between the education and private sectors
