Study Report on the Preparedness for the Vocationalization of Secondary Education in Africa

The vocationalization of secondary education in Africa has the potential to succeed and achieve the intended outcome because the current vocational education profile in Africa can be corrected. Many people know about vocational education but with limited understanding; consequently, it operates with limited human and material resources. The preparedness for the vocationalization of secondary school education is evident because the footprint of vocationalization of secondary school education is visible across the continent. However, to enhance the potential of preparedness, there is a need to improve the reputation of vocational education at secondary schools through familiarisation with the concept and its strategies. In addition, there is a need to see the fulfilment of the commitments made in public policy documents about vocational education. Finally, there is a need to align funding and investment strategies with the targeted vocational education priorities.
