PROJECT: improving digital education in vocational skills development to increase education of rural poor Uganda

Today in Uganda, the African ark college of management sciences council and Commission adopted two proposals for a Council Recommendation in the context of the rural education for the poor and persons with disabilities Year of Skills, with the aim to support persons with disabilities and the education and training sector in providing high-quality, inclusive and accessible digital education and training to develop the digital skills of Ugandan citizens.
The proposals address the two main common challenges jointly identified by the college council and Commission and Uganda as country:
1) the lack of a whole-of- college approach to digital education and training, and
2) Difficulties in equipping students with the necessary digital skills.
Strengthening key enabling factors for students in E-learning in vocational skills
Despite progress and some excellent examples of innovation post COVID-19, combined efforts have so far not resulted in systemic digital transformation in Vocational education and training. Students in rural areas, persons with disabilities still struggle to attain sufficient levels of education due to lack of investment in digital education and training infrastructure, equipment and digital education content, digital training (up-skilling) of teachers and staff, and monitoring and evaluation of digital education and training policies in relation to rural vocational colleges.
The proposal for E-learning will ensure universal access to inclusive and high-quality digital education and training, to address the digital divide, which will become even more apparent in the light of the COVID-19 crisis. This could be achieved by creating a coherent framework of investment, governance and teacher training for effective and inclusive digital education. It proposes guidance and action that will promote vocational college which will enhance and pursue to implement a whole-of-college and multi-stakeholder approach as well as a culture of bottom-up innovation and digitalization led by education and training staff and students to use E-learning system.
