Technical and vocational education and employment for young people
In charge of project implementation, the Ministry of Vocational Education, Professional Training and Industry (METFPI) delegated its responsibility to the National Fund for Learning, Education and Vocational Training (Fonds National d’Apprentissage, de Formation et de Perfectionnement Professionnel, FNAFPP). The objective of the program is to improve the quality of, and access to technical and vocational training in the three medium-sized cities Kpalimé, Sokodé and Tsévié. In total, seven public or private Centres for Technical and Vocational Training (Établissements de l’enseignement technique et professionnel, ETFP) are supported.
During this first phase, the program focuses on the sector which employs the major part of the work force: the agro-sylvo-pastoral sector.
