In Togo, a national education council will soon be set up

(Togo First) - Togo will soon have a National Education Council (CNE). The project was presented last Wednesday, November 2, 2022, by the minister of primary, secondary, and technical education, Dodzi Kokoroko, during the council of ministers.

The new council will be the product of a merger between existing education councils. It will, on the one hand, ensure the coherence and good coordination of public policies related to education, and on the other hand, foster innovations that will support ongoing reforms, through the update of the legal and institutional framework.

According to the government’s spokesman, Ayewouadan Akodah, setting up the CNE will put an end to the "fragmented governance that does not allow for a clear view of the education sector.”

He added that "the CNE aims to help the government precisely assess the quality of education and its results in terms of training-employment adequacy. It will also contribute to a unitary and coherent educational policy."

According to the ministers’ council, the project adds up to several steps that Lomé has taken in the education and training sectors – actions aimed at fostering sustainable development, productivity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
