Capacity Building for Modernizing TVET Pedagogy in Ethiopia (MOPEDE) focuses on to improve and modernize the accessibility and quality of Vocational Education and Training (VET) teacher education around Ethiopia by institutionalized and curricula integrated e-learning, updated teaching and learning methods and student-centered pedagogy.

Project Manager: Anne Harmoinen

As an outcome of the project the e-learning will be institutionalized in Technical and Vocational Training Institute (TVTI) 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 TVTI 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.
