Cameroon - Higher Education Technical Training Project (English)

The objectives of the Higher Education Technical Training Project are to: (i) encourage existing private sector enterprises to become involved in the management, the selection of courses, and the development of curricula in public sector higher education institutions; (ii) involve private sector enterprises in the training of higher education students in both public and private sector institutions; (iii) insist on following up regularly the employment situation of students in the year following their graduation, and the attitude of employers to the training these students have received; (iv) allow a range of different types of courses depending on market demand; short courses requested by employers, sub-degree, degree, or post graduate, regular full time, part time, or evening; (v) encourage institutions to raise a substantial proportion of the non salary recurrent resources they will need from non-governmental sources; and (vi) allow institutions full financial autonomy and control in the utilization of all self generated resources. The project components include: (i) the strengthening of existing disciplines through the introduction of new training options requested by local industries; (ii) the addition of new disciplines and system coherence; and (iii) institutional development, evaluation and follow-up, and sustainability of policy initiatives.
