Goal 3: Improve the quality of the education system in order to create a more highly qualified and technologically skilled labor force. The Governments of El Salvador and the United States will join forces to help ensure that education of the labor supply matches labor market demand. On Track The USG provided training to 239 English teachers and 200 students continuing English studies. Under a USAID program, 111 high school students graduated after receiving specialized courses in English and Information Technology, and 87 percent will pursue a college degree. Twenty students were given scholarships to study in community colleges in the US. The USG offered 13 seminars on science and technology at Don Bosco University. The GOES, through the Salvadoran Institute for Professional Training (INSAFORP), invited bids for the National English for Work Program, developed in conjunction with the USG, to teach English to 4,000 participants. INSAFORP, working with the USG, trained 53 youth in basic competencies for entry-level employment, resulting in 32 job placements. In addition, 400 youth were trained in information and communications technology (ICT), and INSAFORP trained 3,642 workers in ICT. INSAFORP, together with the private and academic sectors, produced a study on future professional training for occupations supporting tradables. As previously reported, the Global Competitiveness Index for 2013-14 ranked El Salvador 100 out of 148 countries in the Higher Education and Training sub-index; and 121 of 148 countries in the sub-index on Labor Market Efficiency Both showed a slight improvement in respect to the 2012-2013 sub-indexes.
