This study has three broad objectives. Firstly, it seeks to compare experiences on the education and training of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) teachers in South Africa, Egypt, Ghana, Tanzania, and Cameroon. Secondly, it seeks to get input from inspiring practices from European Member States. Lastly, policy pointers should be proposed for further action. This study was commissioned as part of the South Africa – EU Strategic Partnership sectoral policy dialogue in education. Data was collected between December 2014 and September 2015. The study serves as input to that policy dialogue, in particular in relation to the education and training of upper secondary and higher TVET teachers working in institution-based TVET providers in the formal public education system.
