Basic education and VSD interactions

The discourse on sustainable development reflects an expanded vision for universal education: it places substantial emphasis on education and training that supports broader socio-economic development. Sustainable Development Goal 4 envisages “Inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all”, with targets specific to technical and vocational skills development (TVSD). In this context, continuity between basic education under state frameworks and the provision of TVSD opportunities is vital to ensuring access to lifelong learning. NORRAG’s work in this sector focuses on the education-training continuum in Africa and other regions of the global South in an effort to encourage and support local knowledge production on the current TVSD system and the possibilities for increased synergy between the basic education and TVSD systems.
