We are pleased to announce three opportunities to partner with skills institutions in South Africa. As the economic powerhouse of Sub-Saharan Africa, the demand for skills development in South Africa continues to increase. In order to maintain growth, the skills institutions must continue to innovate and advance, and many of South Africa’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training institutions have recognise that international collaboration is one way in which this may be achieved.
British Council South Africa has identified three organisations with senior leaders who are hoping to partner with their peers in the UK. These colleges share attributes, aims and challenges with the UK sector, and an assessment panel will ensure leaders working in similar contexts, targeting comparable goals, or with the expertise sought by their counterparts are paired to ensure that participants derive maximum impact from their involvement in the programme.
Eligible organisations are those that:
- are involved in the delivery or accreditation of structured, accredited vocational qualifications such as apprenticeships, BTEC etc.
- are inspected by OFSTED or other quality assurance inspection agency
- are based and registered in the UK.
If your organisation is eligible and would like to put forward a minimum of one and a maximum of three leaders or senior managers who would benefit from the programme, please read the Application Form Guidance 2018 below, before completing the online Application form here.
In order to be considered for the February 2018 opportunities in South Africa, the online Application Form must be submitted before 17.00 (GMT) on Monday 19 February 2018. British Council will assess and shortlist the applications and notify successful institutions.
