1.                  Background and rationale for the mission

1.1.             General background

The Association pour la Promotion de l’Education et de la Formation à l’Etranger (APEFE) is a Belgian 40 years old non-profit organisation working for skills development in the southern countries. Close to the international relations of the Federation of Wallonie-Bruxelles and Wallonia, APEFE is also strengthening collaborations between institutional stakeholders of the Belgian cooperation. APEFE supplies national sectorial policies’ implementation programmes with technical assistance, methodological support and material resources, to help achieving the sustainable development goals.

APEFE has been active in Rwanda since 30 years. 

In 2015, the Government of Rwanda through the Ministry of Public Service and Labour (MIFOTRA) initiated Workplace Learning policy (WPL) to improve the employability skills of youth and to facilitate their access to the labour market through integrating employees in skills development.

To support the implementation of this policy, APEFE, in partnership with MIFOTRA and PSF (Private Sector Federation) has started the Workplace Learning Support Programme –IGIRA KU MURIMO to pilot the dual or apprenticeship training system from 2017 to 2021.

1.2.             The Workplace Learning Support Programme

The 2017-2021 programme of APEFE in Rwanda aims at the development of apprenticeship training, ensuring a quality and inclusive vocational training. While supporting the implementation of the Workplace Learning Policy, approved in September 2015, by the Government of Rwanda, APEFE wishes to empower young Rwandan women and men access decent jobs and thus fight against poverty.

To this end, through the Workplace Learning Support Programme, APEFE supports the main actors of this policy:

-          The Ministry of Public Service and Labour (MIFOTRA), responsible for the coordination of the implementation of the Workplace Learning Policy;

-          The Private Sector Federation (PSF), umbrella organization that brings together chambers and professional associations. PSF supports companies to invest in youth training in collaboration with vocational training centres.

In this 2017-2021 phase, APEFE, MIFOTRA and PSF, in collaboration with other key partners, are jointly implementing this support programme which aims at 3 results:

1.      Different stakeholders collaborate and co-ordinate inclusive and equitable quality apprenticeship training.

2.      TVET institutions train young women and men to be competitive on the labour market.

3.      Companies are able to provide workplace learning opportunities.


The programme partners (PSF and MIFOTRA) and other stakeholders (Ministry of Education, Rwanda Development Board, Workforce Development Authority, Rwanda Polytechnic, Chambers and Professional Associations) perform, together with the APEFE team, capacity development of the beneficiaries (TVET institutions and companies) to ensure organisational development in the change process.
