Vocational education and training can make a decisive contribution to reducing poverty and elevating livelihood. It seeks to give everyone the qualifications they need to be part of the working world, open doors and find a reasonably paid job as well as better opportunities for selfemployment. ASOD will ensure that vocational education and training options are accessible to all sections of the population in Uganda and  its partner countries, in particular the poorest and most vulnerable.   ASOD is committed to the development of vocational education and training opportunities that are accessible to all ,enable lifelong learning and promote self sustainability. Its activities are aimed at the poorest and most socially vulnerable sections of the population, young people and women as well as rural populations. In this context, it endeavors to establish an efficient and flexible education system that addresses local needs and requirements. ASOD has two priority areas:

Facilitating access to vocational education and training opportunities;

This objective requires ASOD to significantly increase opportunities offered by its local and international partners and to involve private training organizations. For this purpose, ASOD supports the definition of national standards clarifying the role of public and private education and training providers. It also ensures that vocational education and training opportunities are available to all. This requires lowering entry barriers, such as incomplete basic education, limited financial resources or training centers that are too far away. ASOD supports innovative teaching and learning methods, expanding and adapting such options for rural regions. ASOD also includes entrepreneurship expertise in vocational education and training curricula to promote self-employment.

 

Promoting the relevance and quality of vocational education and training opportunities.

As for the second objective, ASOD is involved in bringing vocational education and training more into line with labor market requirements and demand. Its interventions are based on the existing conditions of employment at local and regional levels. It therefore encourages the involvement of the private sector in developing occupational profiles and in financing training. ASOD promotes further education options that enable employees to adapt to the changing labor market conditions.

Context

Vocational training, together with basic education, is one of the main preconditions for economic and social development. In West Africa, a third of young people has received no education or training, and is unemployed. The causes are many, two of which are poor literacy skills and training not adapted to labor market requirements. When training exists, it is limited to urban areas. Economic development requires training and further education opportunities for people of all ages, and the development of training options accessible to all social groups and to people of all levels of knowledge. This elevates and makes  human capital more sustainable which is a basic indicator of growth and development.

Targeted training options and gateways

The poorest and most socially vulnerable segments of population are often excluded from economic life because they lack the necessary qualifications. Training designed for these young people and adults help them take control of their lives. This vocational training also needs to address market needs, including the market not regulated by the state. Persons living in rural regions and those who are interested in self-employment should have access to the appropriate and relevant  training they need. It is also important to ensure a good level of basic education, which vocational training can build on, and consolidate where necessary. Finally, gateways between vocational and academic education and training must be put in place.
