Steering and Guidance

PEFOP’s activities are submitted for review to the IIEP-Pôle de Dakar’s oversight committee (OC), that reviews the Pôle’s entire programme.

The recommendations formulated by the OC enable, among others, to finalize PEFOP’s annual programme and budget that are submitted with the Pôle’s entire programme to IIEP’s board of directors for approval.

For the first phase, financed by AFD, a PEFOP steering committee including a representative of each partner country’s vocational education ministry, an AFD representative and the IIEP-Pôle de Dakar Coordinator, reviews the activity reports of the year elapsed and the technical and financial planning for the year to come, ahead of the OC.
