Coordination of a virtual conference on funding for vocational training

From 9 to 16 January last, GRET coordinated a virtual conference via Unevocthe TVeT Forum experts’ platform focusing on the subject of funding for vocational training.

The conference, which brought together 219 participants from 81 countries, facilitated sharing of experiences, tools and best practices focusing on the following approaches:

  • budgetary prioritisation and efficient use of public resources;
  • implementation of work-study and apprenticeship training systems;
  • development of activities that generate income by training centres;
  • introduction of training fees;
  • and lastly, mobilisation of companies by implementing training taxes and funds.

GRET used comparative studies it led or in which it participated in South-East Asia (AFD/Unesco, 2017, forthcoming) and in sub-Saharian Africa to coordinate the discussions (AFD/Adea, 2014: Funding of vocational training in Africa – Roles and specifities of funds to finance vocational training (in French only); 2015: PQIP/DCTP inter-coutry seminar on funding of vocational training, 7 to 8 December 2015 in Abidjan (in french only)).
