UNESCO presented a report on the Situational Assessment of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Higher Education and Innovation in Namibia, to the Government of Namibia in Windhoek on 12 September, 2016.

The report, which was presented to the Minister of Higher Education, Training and Innovation Dr Itah Kandji-Murangi, includes policy recommendations based on findings from a mission to Namibia led by Dr Borhene Chakroun, Chief of Section of Youth, Literacy and Skills in Paris.

It is the result of continuous collaboration between experts assembled by UNESCO and Namibian stakeholders in the areas of TVET, higher education and innovation.

At the ceremony, Regional Director of the UNESCO Regional Office for Southern Africa in Harare, Zimbabwe, Professor Hubert Gijzen, applauded the mission and its stakeholders for their efforts. He said the report recognised the challenges, opportunities and strategic directions in the specific context of Namibia and aligned with Namibia’s 2016-2020 development action plan towards Prosperity for All.

Receiving the report Dr Kandji-Murangi promised that the ministry would use if as the basis for developing a work-plan and ensuring the implementation of the policy recommendations.
