Detailed description of project Back
The Education Sector Policy (LPSE) gives absolute priority to the development of a vocational education and training system that responds adequately to the needs of the enterprises in the informal and modernised sectors of the economy and whish more demand oriented. As such a new Education Sector Programme (PSE) was launched in March 2008 with as one of the main objectives the set-up of a vocational training system that responds in an efficient and effective way to the expectations of the youngsters and the enterprises. More precisely the Programme sets out to create short vocational training trades with the objective to ensure the insertion in the labour market of 20% of the primary school leavers who do not continue to lower secondary education, 30% of lower secondary school leavers who do not enrol in higher secondary education by 2015.
The following activities have therefore been foreseen in the Three Annual Budget Planning (PBTA) of the Education Sector Programme, Programme 3 (technical and vocational education and training): (i) piloting and partnership; (ii) validation of the key trades; (iii) identification of programmes and infrastructures; (iv) operationalization.
The first activity envisages accompanying the National Direction for Vocational Training (DN-FP) during the first year of implementation of initiatives for short term vocational training. The current partnership contract with a specialised institution will provide assistance to the relevant staff in the Ministry.
PROMAN and Cecoforma provide the services of a Long Term Expert with short term inputs of a national Expert.
