VET Toolbox is a partnership of leading European development agencies, including British Council (UK), Enabel (Belgium), Expertise France (France), GIZ (Germany), LuxDev (Luxembourg) and AFD (France). The project is co-funded by the European Union and by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

VET Toolbox aims at supporting partner countries in the design of national vocational education and training (VET) and employment strategies, and at enhancing their VET service delivery systems.

Initiated in 2017, the first programme of the project closed in December 2022, with five years of significant impact across VET systems in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and East Asia, and Latin America. Our short-term technical assistance projects and partnerships between TVET colleges have supported change at a systems level in each of the countries we worked with, and have also delivered benefit to the UK, through creating business opportunities and building the capacity and networks of organisations and individuals. 

The second programme of VET Toolbox is currently focusing on an opportunity-driven action to enhance the delivery of demand-driven skills development and VET to cater for investment needs in 11 selected countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, with the British Council delivering the programme in two of these, Ghana and Malawi.
