How can students living in rural areas access quality vocational education?

Mobile Outreach Training

location_on Zimbabwe
Young Africa offers skills training in various technical, commercial and agricultural skills. The nature of courses on offer is based on market demand and through on-going evaluation with our target group of young people aged 15-25. Course content is made up of over 70% practical training and 30% trade-related theory training. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is integrated with Life Skills and Entrepreneurship education. Where available, our courses are linked to government vocational training systems, or accredited by relevant local authorities. Each semester, students who pass their exams receive their certificates at festive graduation ceremonies. Our integrated TVET has evolved over the years and is now being delivered in three different models: centre-based, mobile outreach and industry-attached.

about the innovation

Mobile Outreach Training

In response to the growing demand for TVET and employability programmes among disadvantaged young people in marginalised, remote and outlying areas, YA Zimbabwe has been implementing an outreach TVET programme where a mobile unit comprising equipment, trainers and training consumables moves from one remote site to the other delivering 12 week-long TVET programmes, fully integrated with entrepreneurship development and Life Skills education. After training, students undertake an attachment and, where necessary, YA offers post-training support such as linking graduates with micro-financing institutions.
