Brief on UNESCO CFIT III Project

The UNESCO China Funds-in-Trust (CFIT) Phase III: Higher Technical Education in Africa for a Technical and Innovative Workforce was initiated with the signing of an agreement between the People’s Republic of China and UNESCO in October 2019. The overall objective of the
project is to enhance the capacity of higher education institutions (HEIs) to respond to the skills needs for national development by facilitating collaboration between higher education and the industry, enhancing labor market-oriented teaching, and strengthening competence-based learning. In Uganda, the project is active at Makerere University and Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST). It intends to contribute to the promotion of inclusive and equitable quality education in higher technical fields at the tertiary level, to serve both economic development and lifelong learning needs. The project will specifically promote Goal 4.4 of the Sustainable Development Goals which emphasizes the need for higher level technology skills training to substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.
