TVET Phase 2
A general consensus has developed that Rwanda, as other developing countries, faces challenges including the liberalization of the market, rapid innovations in technology, and the importance of knowledge to a country’s competitive advantage.
Against these pressures, countries are turning to their education and training systems as part of the solution for dealing with a whole range of social and economic issues. In light of this, the Government of Rwanda has undertaken significant steps to strengthen TVET.
The new direction for TVET is oriented towards the world of work and the acquisition of competency-based employable skills. This change is necessary to train the skilled and entrepreneurial workforce that Rwanda needs to create wealth.
TVET will respond to the needs of different industries, and also to the different training needs of learners from different socio-economic backgrounds. TVET will seek to ensure equitable access and outcomes for men and women, boys and girls,and vulnerable groups. TVET in close collaboration with the private sector the key to building this type of technical and entrepreneurial workplace.
The TVET-BiWe Partnership Project contributes to the Rwanda’s Education Sector Strategic Plan goal increased equitable access to relevant, high-quality, demand-driven TVET programmes.
