Contents session 1. Vocational Education and Training (VET)--basics for teaching and research in vocational education and training at universities -- session 2. Establishment of a VET system with focus on Further Education--presentation of ideas on the motivation and establishment of a Further Education system (FES), especially in universities in Sub-Sahara Africa -- session 3. What are concepts or conditions of success for a networked ET learning and teaching (oriented on competence, working practice, flexible, etc.) and especially for a networked Further Education system in VET?
Summary There is a rising demand for specialist workers in several countries of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The area still lacks a consistent system of professional training and further education. The conference transcript comprises practical knowledge collected by the authors to depict the current state of professional training within the Sub-Saharan African countries. The paper also introduces the reader to concepts for the development of a professional training system and provides an overview of the strategies and plans of different countries and institutions. The included articles were written within the framework of a symposium on the status quo and the perspective of professional training and further education. This gathering took place in Namibia in August 2016 and brought together researchers and business actors from the Sub-Saharan states, Europe, Australia, and Asia
Notes "The contributions in this publication were presented at the Vocational Education and Development Symposium. The symposium took place in Windhoek, Namibia from 23 to 25 August 2016. It was funded by the VW Foundation and directed by the Namibia University of Science and Technology."--Page 3
