Learn 4 Work

Learn4Work is a programme to improve vocational education in Africa. By linking African and Dutch (business) organisations, schools and people, it makes a positive contribution to:

  • the number of young people who can learn a trade;
  • the quality of vocational training;
  • better alignment with and flow-through to the job market.

Vocational training is the basis for finding work or starting a business. Work offers young people more opportunities to improve their income and raise their standard of living.

Learn4Work is co-funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
