In January 31, 2016 the revised Statute of the Pan African University was adopted.
The AU Assembly had first adopted the Statutes of the Pan African University at its 20th ordinary session in January 2013. The Pan African University is an academic network of existing African institutions operating at graduate level.
The five-year Strategic Plan (SP) of the Pan-African University (PAU) is envisaged to be implemented in the period 2020-2024, with a preparation year in 2019. The SP focuses on strengthening the successes achieved so far while systematically addressing the key challenges faced during the Initiation Phase of the PAU.
The Africa We Want
AGENDA 2063 is Africa’s blueprint and master plan for transforming Africa into the global powerhouse of the future. It is the continent’s strategic framework that aims to deliver on its goal for inclusive and sustainable development and is a concrete manifestation of the pan-African drive for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity pursued under Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance.
In the bid to “create” a new African citizen who will be an effective change agent for the continent’s sustainable development as envisioned by the AU and its 2063 Agenda, the African Union Commission has developed a comprehensive ten-year Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA 16-25).
A guide for Africa to exploit its opportunities
Africa should not only be seen as the home of problems, it is also the land of opportunities. This paradigm shift is inculcated in the six (6) priority areas and associated indicators of the Science Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa (STISA-2024) to guide countries to invest in the change they want to see, and truly build the “Africa We Want”.
A central theme within the continental TVET strategy is the strengthening of global partnerships to support skills development in the continent. The participation of key stakeholders is crucial in TVET and this strategy advocates for a structured and continuous collaboration between the productive sectors, social partners, training institutions and professional associations, among other strategic partners.
