Strategy

How has Uganda’s WfD system evolved?

Oversight

latent > emerging > established > advanced

Summary: Slowly emerging reform of the BTVET sub-sector modeled after international best practice; conceptualization ahead of implementation.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive 10-year sub-sector (BTVET) Strategic Plan approved in 2011, complemented by increased public allocation
  • Recent reform design based on labor-market and sub-sector analysis and stakeholder feedback

Macro context

  • Economy is growing above SSA average
  • Development of oil industry will further change economic structure
  • Emergence of East African market and increasing competition
  • Huge share of informal sector employment

What are the biggest issues?

  • The urgent need to employ new labor market entrants nurtured high level political interest in skills development
  • Considerable (identified) skills deficits hamper productivity increases

What determines the scores?

  • Evidence of enhanced political commitment to reform the WfD system
  • Existing institutional set-up to coordinate WfD stakeholders and interests
  • Lack of incentives for industry to invest in skills development

What are the obstacles to progress?

  • Fragmented organizational set-up impedes coherent and focused management
  • Previous reform efforts remained ineffective due to weak sub-sector leadership, lack of commitment to reform in the education sector, and insufficient resources

5. Funding

What are the biggest issues?

  • Development of Uganda vocational qualifications framework (UVQF) to increase labor-market responsiveness
  • Acknowledgement of the need to diversify funding sources and to improve stakeholder involvement

What determines the scores?

  • New emphasis on non-formal training
  • Systems in place for recognition of prior learning and non-formal training
  • Oversight system not designed to ensure labor market responsiveness

What are the obstacles to progress?

  • Low funding and lack of commitment to reform slows down implementation of key reforms (e.g. training levy; UVQF)
  • Education ministry not prepared to apply mechanisms of employer-involvement in formal training

What are the biggest issues?

  • Private training sector is thriving even without incentives
  • Lack of influence of employers on all aspects of training delivery causes low quality and relevance

What determines the scores?

  • Linkages between industry and training institutions are limited
  • No effective performance incentives for either public or private TVET providers
  • Emphasis on teacher training is acknowledged and slowly being acted upon

What are the obstacles to progress?

  • Lack of M&E culture prevents analysis of performance and identification of challenges
  • Centralized/supply-oriented management of public training supply does not allows for swift market responses

what have we learned from uganda s experience
What have we learned from Uganda’s experience?

Challenges faced

  • Translate high-level political commitment into implementable reforms
  • Create institutions that ensure continuous and tangible stakeholder involvement in policy development, planning, financing and implementation of WfD – particularly in matters influencing the world of work

Lessons Learned

  • Being a sub-sector of education can create obstacles to reform (education principles not always conducive for driving WfD reform)
  • Inputs from development partners are ineffective unless local decision-makers develop a preparedness for reform in response to social and economic circumstances
