Bridging the gap between vocational training and employment in Madagascar

UNESCO capacity development for education programme's (CapED) support in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is part of UNESCO’s wider support to Madagascar since 2011 to systematically improve the quality and efficiency of TVET. UNESCO has observed  improvement in the country’s TVET sub-sector. The Government now prioritizes TVET as a vehicle to boost employment and alleviate poverty and the entire TVET system has been strengthened and restructured, functioning with its first-ever Employment and TVET Policy, a more robust data system, and quality standards for TVET provision with stronger links with labour market needs.
