Project Manager: Anne Harmoinen
As an outcome of the project the e-learning will be institutionalized in Ethiopian Technical University (ETU) and its 15 satellite colleges and integrated into their curricula to update teaching and learning methods, and by doing so to support the quality of TVET teacher training around Ethiopia and to increase the access to it. Additionally, new training modules will be developed for ETU and piloted for the use in future. The project scope involves all regions in Ethiopia via cascading training model.
By doing this, the project contributes to the aim of the Government of Ethiopia to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 4. of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
