UNESCO HQ DR Congo OpenEMIS TVET P0767
Providing better education for DRC’s future
With the Democratic Republic of Congo engaged in the Better Education for Africa’s Rise (BEAR) initiative, the country aims to implement sectorial programs through public-private partnerships and improve the knowledge base and capacity of technical education.
Since 2011, The Ministry of Education in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been working to enhance the Technical Vocational and Educational Training (TVET) Sector and strengthen national Institutions. The Initiative further aims to strengthen the knowledge base of the Ministry through enhancement to the Management Information System.
OpenEMIS has been piloted to monitor TVET programs, collect student and staff level data, and to produce indicators to inform decision making within the sector. The objective of implementing OpenEMIS is to capture quantitative and qualitative data, including data on institutions, teachers, and students by gender, age, ethnicity, disability, and region; strengthen national capacity for research; evidence-based planning; and monitoring of TVET initiatives. The system will ensure consistency between national data and other national certification frameworks, and analyze TVET data to make forecasts by linking skill development to labor market developments.
