One of the most important factors underlying the problem of employment” profession” is unemployment. Surplus of unskilled labor in Turkey appears to be finding the other hand, companies also suffer from high-quality staff. Disputes arising from this scope of supply and demand in the labor market in order to bring a solution to unemployment, last year started “Specialized Vocational Training Centres (UMEM) Skill 10 Project”. Specialized Vocational Training Centres (UMEM) Skill 10 Project was agreed between partners named: Turkey Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges, Ministry of Labour and Social Security, Ministry of Education and TOBB Economics and Technology University (TOBB-ETU).
