Job Description

 The Association pour la Promotion de l’Education et de la Formation à l’Etranger (APEFE) is a Belgian 40 years old non-profit organization 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 sectoral policies’ implementation programmes with technical assistance, methodological support, and material resources, to help to achieve sustainable development goals.

APEFE has been active in Rwanda for more than 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 labor 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.

The program supported apprentices to gain knowledge and skills in beauty and fashion, tailoring, and food processing.

The first cohort of apprentices trained under the program IGIRA KU MURIMO completed a year of training in schools and in companies and graduated in November 2019. A study will be done to assess the employability and income generation of the graduates, as well as collect employers’ satisfaction of their skills level and performance.
