DESCRIPTION

The project consists of the new construction, extension, rehabilitation and equipment of 21 Technical and Technological Institutes (TTIs), classified at the post-secondary level of education. It is part of a 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.

RESULTS

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