TVET Leadership for Transformation

Further training for vocational school managers in South Africa in cooperation with the University of Pretoria (GIZ, 2019-2022) The overall youth unemployment rate in South Africa in 2019 was 55%. This is partly due to the fact that vocational training at so-called TVET schools (Technical Vocational Education and Training) is clearly underrepresented compared to academic training at universities. The South African government attaches great importance to the establishment, development and optimisation of the vocational training sector, as vocational training and the acquisition of competence-based skills by the younger generation can make a significant contribution to the country's development.
The project "Leadership for Transformation" is placed in this overall context. It is a joint project of the Technical University of Munich and the University of Pretoria, financed by GIZ - Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit - with the aim of supporting change and quality improvement in the field of vocational education and training.
