Event description
Join African women and though-leaders at Parliament to discuss the role of vocational education in transforming women's lives in Africa

About this Event

Quality vocational education is increasingly viewed as a key solution to intergenerational poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. Through developing the hard and soft skills that employers are actively seeking, young people can access good jobs. However, to what extent do these solutions include women? And which types of training lead to routes out of poverty?

In WONDER's partner projects, graduates of vocational training courses have high rates of employment and job satisfaction. So why is there not more investment in quality vocational education in Africa?

Hosted by Paul Scully MP, a member of the International Development Select Committee, in Parliament, join Dr Ese Diejomaoh and Belinda Nwosu – two pioneering women leaders from Wonder Foundation’s partner projects in Nigeria and Congo respectively – as we explore whether vocational training can change the lives of African women. We are honoured to be joined by Professor Moses Oketch of the UCL Institute of Education, a recognized expert on technical and vocational education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
