Haiti - Education : Towards the implementation of technical and vocational secondary
Friday, June 17, 2022, during a meeting in the presence and virtual of national and international partners, at the initiative of Nesmy Manigat, the Minister of National Education, there was talk about the relaunch of the implementation project. technical and vocational secondary school next September.

Chaired by the Minister, this meeting allowed national and international actors to shed light on this issue and to express their interest and support for the implementation of this promising project for the sector. Defining the conditions for setting up technical and vocational secondary education in the first high schools targeted by the Ministry and the colleges concerned, as well as the terms of partnership for the implementation of this important aspect of the educational reform, were the two objectives of this important meeting.

For the Minister, we can no longer continue with the sole application of general secondary education as an option offered to young people, "it is imperative in order to better orient young people towards the needs of the labor market and promote their autonomy very early on."

According to Manigat "several new professional professions offer enormous possibilities. We must revalorize the professional and technical trades and orient young people well towards the choice of a profession" explaining that the experiments carried out at the Elie Dubois Technical School and at the Technical Canado show the way, and can serve as a reference for progressing towards operationalization of vocational and technical secondary.

The Minister intends to launch the first experiments in certain school sites, from the next school year 2022-2023, with the contribution of various partners, in particular the European Union and Spanish cooperation. "The La Saline high school is one of the targeted high schools and the contribution of the National School of Arts and Crafts of the Salesian Brothers is expected," said Nesmy Manigat.

Joseph Job Maurice, General Coordinator of the Education and Quality Department at the Ministry, recalled that the various professional and technical sectors are already known with their programs. Stating éWe will take regional realities into account before implementing an option in a public school during this pilot phase."

Minister Manigat said he wanted strong involvement of private sector operators in the process of implementing technical and vocational secondary education "it will not be a purely political and administrative decision. It is a co-construction approach that will be carried out with the contribution of all interested partners and which will give the right to certified professional training after a period of three years."

At the end of the meeting, the Minister proposed the creation of a small working group likely to fuel the reflections around this project and to work on the conditions for setting up technical and vocational secondary in the targeted schools, from next September.
