The Internationaler Bund (IB) - on behalf of the Bundsministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ) and the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) - has launched the project “Supporting the Transformation of Vocational Education and Training in Ghana". The project started in May 2023 and has a duration of 2.5 years.

The project supports the Ghanaian government's strategy to transform the vocational education system to better meet the requirements of economically, socially and environmentally sustainable development. In particular, it promotes the implementation of the strategic education plan and the reform of vocational education legislation.

In cooperation with the partner management4education, the IB supports the project through the demand-oriented provision of experts in the promotion of labour market-oriented vocational education and training (VET) in Ghana. The focus is on green and digital technologies. The consortium is providing expertise to achieve the following outcomes:

- improved capacity of government VET stakeholders to manage the VET system,

- advanced training of vocational education staff to implement competency-based vocational education,

- improved private sector involvement in vocational education,

- Cross-cutting areas such as process management, organizational development of partners, monitoring & evaluation, gender mainstreaming, inclusion of marginalized groups, communication and workshop logistics.

With this project, the IB contributes to improving living conditions in countries of the Global South. It is also implementing its own sustainability strategy. The following sustainable development goals are addressed: SDG 1 (no poverty), SDG 4 (quality education), SDG 5 (gender equality), SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth).
