In recent years, Ethiopia has advanced enormously in the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) sector – both in terms of the quality and quantity of what is on offer to students. Through the German Financial Cooperation with Ethiopia, the German Development Bank, KfW, has been supporting Ethiopia for two decades to ensure vocational training is more practice-oriented and addresses the needs of the private sector. By being more market-focused, effective TVET leads to job creation and the development of business opportunities in the formal and informal sectors.
Under the programme, the training of vocational school teachers at university level is also being improved. Additional measures are being carried out to enhance college management, introduce practice-relevant subject matters, with a special focus on staff training on the maintenance of teaching and training equipment.
