Enabel is the development agency of the Belgian federal government, implementing Belgium’s international development policy. Under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we carry out public service assignments in Belgium and abroad. We provide customised expertise, including Belgian public expertise, we promote the involvement of all and we pursue top-level partnerships. Enabel enhances the impact of Belgium in international development by carrying out assignments for Belgian and international third-party donors. We focus our work mainly on quality improvement of primary and secondary education through teacher training, curriculum reform, teaching innovations – like digitisation – and the introduction of student-centred teaching, i.e. making students into active players in the learning process. We support technical and vocational education and training in many partner countries as a key strategy to address youth unemployment. Through skills training young people learn a skill or a trade that can help them to find decent work or start up their own business (entrepreneurship). ll our interventions aim at structural improvements of the education and vocational training system We do so by strengthening education instances so they are enabled to better design policies, as well as to plan, manage and monitor education.
