The Inter-Country Quality Node for Technical and Vocational Skills Development (ICQN/TVSD) in Africa is jointly coordinated by the Côte d’Ivoire Ministry of Education, Technical Education and Vocational Training (represented by the Office of the Minister of State for Technical Education and Vocational Training) and the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA). It’s objective is to pool the experiences of African countries in order to improve young people’s vocational skills and qualifications and thus to facilitate their access to employment.

The ministerial conference held in Abidjan July 2014 agreed the work programme for the ICQN/TVSD until 2017. In accordance with this programme, the ICQN/TVSD worked on the “Training of trainers and entrepreneurs” theme in 2015 (ministerial conference in Kigali) and on the “Education/training continuum” the mein 2016 (experts seminar in Abidjan). The results of this work is available in the form of two compendiums of country experiences published in French and English on the ADEA website.

Following the conclusions of the experts seminar on the education/training continuum held in Abidjan on 7 and 8 November 2016, it was decided that the ICQN’s activities in 2017 would continue to focus on this theme and that each country participating in the seminar would be asked to provide further information on one of the continuum schemes they have decided to implement.
