The Second Phase of the CapEFA was launched on 11 July 2013 by the former Director General of UNESCO, Ms. Irina Bokova, at Lilongwe Technical College and ended in July, 2017. The goal of the project was to support Malawi TVET reform efforts in order to improve its long-term relevance, efficiency, equity, as well as institutional and financial sustainability.
The CapEFA project, achieved the following: Clarified the roles amongst key stakeholders in TEVET for better development of the TVET sector; Curriculum Harmonisation; Development of Standards in some Trades; Development of a career guide book on TVET trades; Development of an administration guide on TEVET institutions; and Establishment of a Centre of Excellence at Lilongwe Technical College for Technical teacher professional development.
On 19th December, 2015, following the destruction of the library, the former Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Hon. Dr. Emmanuel Fabiano and the Vice Chancellor Prof. Robert Ridley made an appeal to the general public, NGOs, the international donor community, the United Nations as well as fellow citizens of goodwill to assist the library.
It is against this background that in 2016 UNESCO provided financial support of about MK35 million for the purchase of books and computers.
This year’s World Teachers Day celebration in Malawi will be held on two days and two venues: (1) in Lilongwe at Ching’ombe Full Primary school on 5th October and (2) on 9th October at Makawa Full Primary School in Mangochi.
