TVET Country Profile : Niger

The general context related to vocational training and employment in Niger suggests that the country is faced with the challenge of developing human resources in the context of a mismatch between training/employment and the general nature of the education system. Niger is turning increasingly to more professionalized training that effectively meets the needs of an economy dominated by the existence of an informal sector. Niger developed a public TVET system in the 1970s, comprising several levels, with the objective of covering the whole country. From the 2000s, the private sector also began to open TVET establishments.

TVET plays a valuable role by offering a wide variety of skills to improve employability thereby contributing to the productive capacity of business organisations and industries. This paper highlights a county-level overview of the TVET system in Niger, looking at its policy framework, governance, and the involvement of the private sector in TVET. The aim is to provide an overview of strategies for the implementation of TVET to improve TVET reform and quality.
