Eductrade, through its Consulting Department, is implementing the “Project to Support Economic Diversification: Application of the Lesotho Learning Strategy”.
The project has a duration of 9 months and is funded by the African Development Bank. The Ministry of Education and Training of Lesotho is the beneficiary of the programme. The objective of the project is to support private sector development by improving the development of partnerships, entrepreneurship and capabilities, increasing access to financing and the markets and promoting investments in select sectors that are essential for economic diversification.
The design of a learning programme (learning strategy and implementation roadmap) aims to bridge the gap between the skills provided by training institutions and the needs of the industry.
In particular, Eductrade will assist the tripartite organisation in Lesotho in establishing a dual curriculum pursuant to which graduates of higher education institutions are sufficiently exposed to industrial and business practices to meet market needs and/or can relatively easily enter self-employment or the private sector. In addition, the consultant is expected to develop clear guidelines for improving the effectiveness of the tripartite organisation in monitoring implementation of the dual curriculum.
