DESCRIPTION

The project consisted of the construction, extension, rehabilitation and equipment of 21 Technical and Technological Institutes (TTIs), classified at the post-secondary level of education. The project was included in the national educational reform programme aimed at introducing and enlarging the dual system of vocational, technical and professional education in Ecuador. This dual system is based on modules of formal instruction in classrooms combined with training on the job through apprenticeships with private companies. The project was led by EIB and counted with support from LACIF and the World Bank.

RESULTS

The dual system increased the labour market relevance of the technical and technological sector of higher education in Ecuador and increased its share in total enrolment of students as compared to public universities.
