technical education, based on assessments of past learning outcomes, effectiveness of existing skills
programs and labor market needs for priority skills programs in technical schools. The TA is also assisting in
piloting the implementation of new skills programs in priority secondary schools, while ensuring labor
market linkages for technical education. e.Gen has been delivering the following specific outputs:
(i) Assessment of learning outcomes;
(ii) Review of curriculum relevance and recommendations for improvement;
(iii) Analysis of the recurrent unit costs of secondary education;
(iv) Analysis of the cost-effectiveness of existing skills programs;

(vi) Recommendations for priority skills programs for technical education expansion;
