Vocational Education and Training
- Education is Angola’s first priority to bolster and sustain the country’s enviable growth and diversify its economy. During the 27 years of Civil War in Angola, the country’s education system was seriously damaged by the conflict but is now recovering quickly.
- Education begins at the age of 6 and primary school lasts for 8 years. The first 4 years are free and compulsory. Secondary education lasts another 3 years for general education and 4 years for vocational and technical education students.
- 85% of urban children and nearly 70% of rural children are enrolled to attend primary school
- 242,979 teachers have been introduced to the education sector over the past four years in Angola
- 2012 has seen 45,000 new Angolan students entering higher education bringing the total figure to about 195,000
- The Ministry for Social Reinsertion and Banco de Desenvolvimento de Angola offer vocational and practical training which has so far provided 5,000 students with valuable skills and employment
- ‘Angolanisation’–employing and training Angolans to replace expatriate workers- is a legal obligation for companies engaged in the oil and gas sector
- US$0.15 from every barrel of oil produced in Angola is ring fenced for the development of human capital
The education of Angola’s post-war generation is the single most important investment towards the country’s sustained development.
27 years of conflict shattered the country’s education infrastructure. With the backing of international institutions, foreign investment, and local and international NGOs, the Angolan government is rehabilitating the entire education infrastructure.
Thousands of schools are being rebuilt countrywide, curriculums are being revised, and teachers are receiving high-quality training . This process will ensure the success of Angola’s future leaders.
Beginning at the age of 6, primary school lasts for eight years. The first four years are free and compulsory. Secondary education lasts another three years for general education and four years for vocational and technical education students.
Students aiming for university are required to undergo an additional two-three year ‘pre-university’ course. UNICEF, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education are spearheading the creation of child-friendly schools across the country, focusing on the needs and rights of each individual child. UNICEF projects in Angola are financially supported by the governments of Japan and Norway.
