Learning forum: Challenges, solutions, and lessons learned in delivery of non-formal skills training in Malawi
In October 2019 a two-day learning Forum for non-formal Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training (TEVET) service providers was held in Lilongwe. The Learning Forum was organised and facilitated by the European Union (EU) funded Strengthening Technical Education Programme (STEP). Fourteen TEVET training centers attended the Learning Forum to collaborate and share their experience of working in non-formal TEVET sector in Malawi. The objectives of the Learning Forum were:
1. To facilitate learning among TEVET service providers to improve training centers operations and results.
2. To capture and document best practices and results of STEP supported bursary and grant programmes.
This paper outlines the key findings from the Learning Forum; the challenges, solutions, and lessons learnt.
