You can assess what a person is naturally interested in and naturally good at. For exampe, a person may be uneducated but good with his hands. You could train him for some profession where you need to be skilled with your hands, such as a car technician.

If this answer is allowed, the best answer is that you would need to give the person some education.  An uneducated person is most in need of education in order to be more economically productive to society.  This would not necessarily have to be academic education.  It could also be something like vocational training.  However, it would have to be something that would make the person more productive.  Education or training is the best way to accomplish this.

Please note that this applies only to economic productivity.  An uneducated person is no less likely to be productive in other ways than an educated person.
