Vocational skills development and the effective organisation of skills are crucial for countries to be able to enhance their industrial competitiveness and, as a result, improve governance systems and the functioning of their institutions.
Despite several efforts by government and the private sector to invest in the skills development sector in Tanzania, the sector remains weak and presents a number of critical challenges for the country. To inform the development of new strategies for reforming the skills sector, the ACE Research Consortium has carried out an in-depth analysis of the financing and governance of skills development. This brief offers a condensed version of the analysis, as well as potential areas for reform.
