Eritrea Vocational Skills Training


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Eritrea Vocational Skills Training

Pays/Région : Erythrée

Durée : 01.09.2020 - 30.09.2023

Building upon a successful pilot phase (2017-2019), Switzerland will continue to contribute to two well established NGO-ted initiatives on technical and vocational education and training in Eritrea. The initiatives aim at improving the quality of teaching in targeted vocational skills institutions and testing the possibility of engaging in entrepreneurial activities. Ultimately the goal is to contribute to giving better life perspectives and job-opportunities to young Eritreans in their home country.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : The Eritrean economy is controlled by the state and the private sector is almost non-existent. The national service (military and civilian) keeps young people between 18 and 40 in —state attributed- employment with very little pay arid perspectives. This situation remains the main driver of asylum applications of young Eritreans in Europe, including in Switzerland. The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector suffers from many shortcomings : underqualified teachers, outdated teaching methods and material, insufficient teachlng infrastructure, inefficient strategic and institutional embedment, very limited outreach.
* Objectifs  : To contribute to better life perspectives and job-opportunities for young Eritreans in their home-country through supporting vocational skills and micro entrepreneurship initiatives.
* Groupes cibles  :

Partenaires  : Main target groups : the teachers and other staff of the targeted schools, the National Confederation of Eritrean Workers, the Department of TVET under the Ministry Ultimate beneficiaries : learners in the TVE centers (about 1000 youth and 300 employed workers)

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 4’300’000
