GIZ-Sustainable Training and Education Programme

Background

As German organization for international development cooperation with worldwide operations, the federally owned Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its development-policy objectives. GIZ promotes complex reforms and change processes in more than 80 partner countries.

In Ethiopia, GIZ has been working for more than 40 years in bilateral cooperation on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and on commission of the Ethiopian government and international donors.

The Second Ethiopian Growth and transformation Plan (GTP II) assigns a key role to the education sector for accelerating economic growth, achieving developmental goals and becoming a middle-income country by 2025.

The Ethio-German Sustainable Training and Education Programme (STEP), co-financed by the European Union and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), improves the employment prospects of young Ethiopians by promoting quality and relevance in vocational training and higher education.

The programme establishes strong linkages between the education and the private sector to support the development of a modern education system geared towards employment and economic growth.

The programme supports the agro-industrial development of the country through the development of long- and short-term trainings in the agro-processing parks and the establishment of agro industry incubator units.

Relevant skills acquisition is a prerequisite for employment and productivity at work. The Ethiopian Growth and transformation Plan (GTP) assigns a key role to the education sector for accelerating economic growth, achieving developmental goals and becoming a middle-income country by 2025.

While the country has made enormous progress in quantitative expansion of tertiary education, quality and relevance are still lagging behind, negatively affecting the chances of fresh graduates to find decent employment.

The Ethio-German Sustainable Training and Education Programme (STEP) improves the employment prospects of young Ethiopians by promoting quality and
relevance in vocational training and higher education.

The programme establishes strong linkages between the education and the private sector to support the development of a modern education system geared towards employment and economic growth.

STEP supports selected industrial sectors by preparing a skilled workforce able to drive Ethiopia’s economic transformation.
