The National Indicative Programme signed by the EC in November 2006 and by the Government of Peru in June 2007, has earmarked 20 Million Euro to APROLAB II. The objective of the Programme is to reorient the technical and vocational education to the demands of the labour market, the socio-economic needs and the development opportunities of the country.

The Programme is implemented on three levels: within the Ministry of Education at the National Directory for Higher Education and Technical and Vocational Training and the Directory of Higher Technological Education and Technical Production; on a medium level at the Regional Education Offices and the Units for Local Education Management and on micro level within 30 Technical Education Production Centres (CETPRO) and 20 Higher Technological Institutes (IST).

The Results of the Programme to be achieved are:

  • Enhanced capacity on all three levels;
  • Supply of vocational and technical education meeting the demands of the labour market and the corresponding curricula implemented;
  • Teachers applying the new curricula in the 30 CETPRO and the 20 IST using advanced pedagogical methods;
  • Equipment and refurbishment;
  • Successful implementation of a programme for youth without employment and without education;
