The Pefop, a platform of expertise in vocational training in Africa
The objective of the platform is to make operational vocational training policies through the mobilization, enhancement and empowerment of public and private actors involved in the implementation of the reform. The launch workshop of the Platform of Expertise in Vocational Training for Africa (Pefop) was held in Dakar on 2 and 3 November, and brought together nearly a hundred national and international officials and experts.
Supporting the overhaul of vocational training policies in Africa:
- – To fuel economic growth and the competitiveness of firms through appropriate training offer,
- – To help young people secure employment through stronger training-job adequacy.
In this first phase, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mauritania and Senegal will benefit from technical support to make operational their policies. To promote and share the best practices, a broader network of countries and stakeholders involved in the implementation of vocational training policy reforms will also be developed.
