Presentation to donors on school-to-work transitions in vocational education in Mozambique

On 10 June, researchers of the Inclusive growth in Mozambique programme presented recent baseline survey findings to the technical and vocational education donor group in Mozambique.

On 10 June, Sam Jones and Ricardo Santos, researchers of the Inclusive growth in Mozambique programme, presented the results of the recent baseline survey on the school-to-work transitions of students in technical and vocational education to the donor coordination mechanism for the education sector in Mozambique. The audience included representatives from various development partners and UN agencies in Mozambique. The meeting was held on the video-conferencing platform Zoom.

The presentation by the UNU-WIDER Research Fellows was followed by a lively discussion on the role of supervision in vocational institutes and the challenges identified in some of the study areas, especially agriculture. The presentation provided timely information on core issues affecting the Mozambican vocational education sector, as the sector donors are currently planning their support to the elaboration of the new national strategy for technical and vocational education and training.

The follow-up survey on the school-to-work transition of technical and vocational students is being implemented during 2020, with the questionnaire updated to also track COVID-19 awareness and impact. The preliminary results and analysis are expected by early 2021.
