Background

In Tanzania, UNESCO through The Better Education for Africa’s Rise II (BEAR II) project offers technical support to help partners identify areas where TVET systems in Tanzania can be improved in terms of relevance, quality and perception of their technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems, with the global objective of giving young people a better chance of accessing decent employment or of generating self-employment. 

BEAR II Project seeks to improve, among other aspects, the quality and relevance of TVET by working jointly with ministries (Education, Labour, Agriculture, Environment, Regional Administration and Local Government), public authorities in charge of TVET (VETA, NACTE), numerous private-sector organizations and trade unions, public, private and NGO training providers, and development partners to enhance the ongoing efforts towards governance, quality of the training and links with industry. These are activities that are embedded in the ongoing the TVET Development Programme (TVETDP). As such, BEAR II complements implementation of the TVET Development Programme (TVETDP). Largely, the activities of BEAR II are also the activities outlined in TVETDP
