African Education Trust Fund Design & operational guidelines
The African Private Sector Summit (APSS) has envisaged during its second series in Accra, Ghana, several measures that will propel the unification of all African Countries and the effective implementation of AfCFTA. One of the key elements is the need for reforming African Higher Education and TVET systems highlighting the need to establish a regional financial mechanism to support the sustainable financing of the AETF to promote closer collaboration between education and industry. Following this recommendation, this initiative was launched jointly by PACCI and AAU via an MOU signed on March 2021.
The AETF Founding Group, (AAU-PACCI-APSS) hereinafter referred to as “AETF”, is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to design an AETF and to develop operational guidelines. The attached RFP and Terms of Reference contains all the necessary information for interested Offerors.
The goal of the Group is to establish and maintain partnerships between higher learning institutions and industry to strengthen learning Institutions-Industry collaboration vital to Africa’s development.
This service is funded by the Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PACCI) and the Association of African Universities (AAU) to put in place the institution that promotes and manages collaboration between universities and industry to contribute to the development of the continent.
