Baseline Study for Distance Technical and Professional Education in Mozambique
This baseline study has been undertaken to describe and analyse the current situation with respect to TVET, in order to evaluate the needs and the viability of employing open and distance Learning (ODL), and in particular eLearning in a flexible and blended approach. The main focus of the study is directed to that part of the system that is under the responsibility of the National Directorate for Technical and Professional Education (DINET) – namely the pre-tertiary level public-sector TVET institutions. These institutions are classified into three levels, equivalent to the subdivisions of the general education system: elementary, basic and medium, the last being equivalent to high school – the 11th and 12th grades. Elementary level courses are offered in 36 technical schools, 28 offer basic level courses and 19 offer courses at the medium level, a total of 85.
