Togo will soon have a community college to get the youth more jobs

(Togo First) - The pilot phase of WAEMU’s community college project will be launched in Togo. The workshop to validate the technical document for the project commenced on Sept. 8 in Lomé.

During the four-day workshop, regional experts will validate the legal framework that will ease the project’s implementation and draw a list of professions falling under the pilot phase. This phase will be carried out at the regional center for technical education and professional training located in the coastal region.   

“The difference between a community college and other vocational training institutions is that at community colleges, there is flexibility in training offerings that are modulated to the needs of the community,” said Sow Essoyobawè, who coordinates Togo’s mutualization entity.

The project, let’s note, aligns with various education-focused actions that the Togolese government took in recent years via its Education and Development Agency (AED). 

Let’s also recall that the AED is in charge of the construction and management of training schools providing sandwich courses focused on development (IFAD).
