Education, training & employment

Education is key to economic and personal development.

What we do

Improving the access to and the quality of education

Together with our partners, we invest in improving the quality of primary and secondary education through teacher training, curriculum reform, the introduction of teaching innovations – like digitisation – and the promotion of student-centred teaching and learning methods.

We work on increasing access to education and more specifically on improving school attendance of girls by addressing access barriers and supporting the creation of a safe, inclusive and healthy learning environment. In addition, we assist with the rehabilitation and construction of schools with a particular focus on climate-smart schools.

Strengthening the education and training system

All our actions aim at structural improvements of the education and training system. We do so by strengthening education and training instances, so they are enabled to better design policies, as well as to plan, manage and monitor education and training. This is always done in collaboration with partner ministries and local stakeholders.

Typical activities in this area include: supporting policy development, including adherence to the principles of decent work, strengthening monitoring and evaluation systems, introducing results-based planning and budgeting and improving the financial management of the sector.

Skilling for Decent Jobs

We support skills development as a key strategy to address (youth) unemployment. We aim at improving the match between skills requested by the labour market and the skills training offered by education and training providers. This approach generates a skilled labour force that is better equipped to find a decent job or to become an entrepreneur. It contributes to individual well-being, as well as to the economic development of a country and involves the private sector in the development process.


We also focus on developing and promoting tools, methods and approaches for inclusion of specific vulnerable groups , for whom the labour market is hard to access.
