British Council has kicked off its Going Global Partnerships project in Sudan with a public forum in Khartoum. The event was part of the programme’s campaign to raise the image and improve public perception of TVET through gender equality and social inclusion in Sudan skills system. The forum hosted over 500 participants, including learners form vocational training schools, senior leaders, vocational entrepreneurs and members of the general community interested in the skills system and provision in Sudan.

Speakers from the private and public sectors, representing representing Sudan, South Africa and the UK, shared their experience and discussed solutions to raising the profile of the TVET sector. The British Council work with the Moheo collage in South Africa was presented as a case study in this respect. 

“For me, this is a huge success for the TVET system in Sudan, to have an event like this with all these stakeholders in one room, and more importantly, speaking about this burning issue that we face, and working on a daily basis with other training providers”, Director of the Tutti vocational training centre.
