Vocational Training and Higher Education

Ethiopia invests heavily in education to lay the foundation for future development. The number of trainees, students, training institutions and the demand for qualified professionals in vocational and tertiary education has increased in recent years. Further efforts target the sector’s quality and labour market-orientation. Our aim is to expand the capacities of Ethiopian institutions to manage reform processes, and to improve the quality of teacher training. Next to capacity building, the support for vocational schools, universities and examination centres includes investments in infrastructure and equipment.
