ADEA Inter-country Quality Node on Technical and Vocational Skills Development

Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire


adeaThe ADEA Inter-country Quality Node on Technical and Vocational Skills Development (ICQN/TVSD) was launched in July 2010 during a Ministerial Conference to serve as a catalyst for policies, strategies and action in favor of the development of technical and vocational skills to support the accelerated, sustainable development of Africa. As of 2014, the node is comprised of more than 20 participating governments – Francophone, Anglophone and Lusophone – from all the sub-regions of Africa. The idea behind the setting up of inter-country quality nodes was to involve the countries as focal points, in order to develop a transnational cooperation in terms of policies, knowledge and experiences. The lead organization of the ICQN/TVSD is the Ministry for Technical and Vocational Training of Côte d’Ivoire.
