– Increased participation of youth and adults, also from vulnerable groups, in technical and vocational education and training;
– Capacity of education institutions, administrations and systems strengthened.

– Ensure that education is being delivered in safe learning environments (child protection) with participation of communities.
– Production and distribution of good teaching and learning materials.
