SDC Education Network's Learning Journey Interlinking Basic Education and VSD Kick-off webinar
The SDC has longstanding expertise in supporting its partner countries in basic education (BE) and vocational skills development (VSD). In 2017, a common thematic guidance on BE and VSD was elaborated with a clear purpose of strengthening their complementarity. In 2021, an external review found that there was widespread recognition of the importance of stronger linkages between VSD and BE, but that progress towards this goal should be accelerated.
Therefore, the Education and VSD expert teams, together with their respective backstoppers, drafted a programmatic and practical how-to-do-note on how to operationalise the interlinkages between BE and VSD. The guide shows why a combination of basic education and vocational skills is needed for decent work and for inclusive and sustainable economic development, and how the SDC can operationalise BE/VSD interlinkages in its concrete work.
We very much look forward to presenting this new guiding document to you and kick-start a series of learning events on this important topic.
There will be a webinar in French (24 April, 14h-15h CEST) and another one in English (26 April, 11h-12h CEST). We invite you to already have a look at the publication before the webinar.
