TAS-02: Addressing youth unemployment in the Philippines: A policy analysis of JobStart and Enterprise-led Learning Networks (ELLN)

Intended to be evidence-based policy support for the Bureau of Local Employment (BLE) in its continued quest to lower youth unemployment in the Philippines, this issue paper embodies a “choice-problem” type of policy analysis which puts utmost emphasis on both problem analysis and solution analysis. On the one side, the problem analysis reveals various causes and effects of high youth unemployment in the country. Per the problem structuring, there are at least 14 possible causes identified, of which 8 are deemed plausible causes based from review of relevant literature and author’s own previous studies. On the other side, solution analysis revolves around the evaluation of the identified/formulated policy alternatives being proposed for BLE’s consideration: (1) continue JobStart implementation (status quo or no action alternative); (2) terminate implementation of JobStart Program and replace it with Enterprise-led Learning Networks (ELLN); and (3) continue implementing JobStart and then introduce ELLN as a complementary program.
