Privatization, choice and competition: The World Bank's reform agenda for vocational education and training in sub-Saharan Africa
This article assesses the extent to which the reform strategy presented in the World Bank's 1991 Sector Policy paper on vocational education and training (VET) has been implemented in Sub-Saharan Africa. The two main conclusions are, (1) to date, only a small group of countries in Africa have seriously attempted to implement the Bank's reform agenda for skills training; and (2) as currently conceived, it is unlikely that demand-led VET systems and related policies will be successfully introduced in most SSA countries.
