Nigerian delegation visits the Netherlands

The Nigerian Employers’ Organisation NECA (Nigerian Employers’ Consultative Association) and the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) have been promoting Technical and Vocational Education in Nigeria for over 7 years through a Public-Private Partnership for the same purposes. Nigerian youths are being empowered with skills for employment, entrepreneurship and wealth creation through the ITF-NECA Technical Skills Development Project (TSDP). A major component of the activities for the TSDP this year was a Study Tour, by major decision makers, of a country with an effective technical skills development scheme.

The Netherlands has been identified as one such country. That is why DECP set up a programme that enabled the guests and the hosts to meet and to exchange experiences. The delegation met their hosts at inspiring locations, where companies, schools and government work together, where students learn from teachers as well as from company specialists. The Study Tour took place from 11 until 15 September.
