Why Vocational Education In Africa Has To Be Engaging And Rewarding -doat

In our previous articles, we have spoken a lot about the vocational education landscape in Africa, why it needs an upgrade, and why Africa cannot do without a skilled workforce. But one thing that we really have not spoken about is the way vocational education should be taken to the students. And this is important. Because, education whether it is formal or vocational has to be engaging and rewarding, else it wouldnt interest the students. Most of us are formally educated and have been in classes when we were bored to death because we either did not like the subject, or the topic that was being discussed, or the teacher failed to make the learning interesting and innovative. This is probably the biggest challenge Africa has to tackle if it is to hook the students in the vocational stream. We have to make vocational education and training engaging and appealing to its target audience school kids, college kids, and those who have opted for higher vocational/technical courses. We need to get innovative, new-age professional companies on board Schools, colleges, and even corporates can partner with vocational education and training companies to strengthen their courses and make them more appealing to the students. Our kids are our future, and so is vocational education and training We have talked about it. Africa cannot do much unless it is supported by a vast base of skilled workforce. And skilling the youth wouldnt be possible unless we make vocational/technical education interesting and engaging. We have to do it right from the schools. Formal education is amazing. But we also need to realize that we have to promote vocational education as well, if we are to make a cut in the global arena. Corporates can play a role here. All they need to do is engage with training companies that can help them make the most of their corporate social responsibility companies . For example, a refinery or a manufacturing business can partner with a training company to up skill the youth in and around its region for job roles either in its own business unit or in other high growth sectors. This way, companies will not only meet their CSR obligations, but also make a remarkable impact on the society it operates in. Moreover, they can create a pool of skilled workforce for their own business operations. Coming back to the point, things would not change much, if we do not work on the vocational education content and its delivery. We need to make it a point that the content is student friendly and teachers are using the most effective delivery methods while interacting with the students.
