The BMZ/ Germany funded and GIZ/ German Cooperation implemented “Sustainable Training and Education Programme” (STEP) is supporting the Ethiopian Government with its reforms in Higher Education and Technical Vocational Education and Training/ TVET.
The time frame of the current phase is 2015-2017.
Reform of post-secondary education, particularly in the technical sector, is a critical aspect for moving Ethiopia towards its development goals. STEP supports its partners in the Ethiopian government to reform the higher educational and TVET sectors targeting the improvement of graduates with regard to their competences needed in the labour market. The Ethiopian partners are government offices on federal and regional levels as well as educational institutions themselves.
STEP helps Ethiopia improve the quality of education in vocational training colleges and universities. We work together to better quality of teaching, establish effective systems in educational institutions and develop the skills of managers who will lead in the education sector. We help to establish a sustainable quality of education that prepares people for the jobs that will contribute to growth in Ethiopia’s economy.
