TVET Country Profile : Somalia

Prior to the collapse of the state in 1991, the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system in Somalia was well-developed. The subsequent civil war weakened political and social structures, including the education system, leading to an entire generation with
low levels of education.

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 Somalia, 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 implementing TVET to improve TVET reform and quality.
