A key driver of current efforts to reform technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in Ethiopia is the need to strengthen linkages between industry and the national training system.
The ILO Skill-UP Ethiopia Project is partnering with the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Agro-Processing sector to improve productivity through skills development and to strengthen the quality and relevance of training for priority occupations in the sector. The four key goals are:
- Reduce skills gaps and shortages
- Improve productivity
- Increase opportunities for all individuals in the workforce
- Improve learning supply
Semi-government and non-government organisations, such as, Sector Skills Committees, partner with government to achieve mutually beneficial national goals. These new types of partnerships, brought about by the coming together of government and the private sector leads to new forms of training and ultimately higher quality employment outcomes.
This operational guide should be read in conjunction with, and forms part of, the Sector Skills Committee Governance and Operational Guide.
