Education for Mining Development Study


Description

C2D carried out a study funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) on the education sector and the extent to which it supports the mining sector, in Ethiopia. Based on the existing situation and the potential for development of the mining sector, the survey assessed the capacity of Ethiopian technical/vocational schools (TVETs) and universities to produce graduates that meet future labour market demand stemming from the mining industry, both in terms of quantity and quality.

More specifically, the study assessed the capacity of Ethiopian institutions with respect to the needs of the private mining industry as well as those of public and semi-public sector agencies responsible for various aspects of mining sector regulations or support (ministry, geological survey, environment, etc.). It covered the capacity of education institutions to train human resources for the industrial mining sector as well as their capacity to help upgrade skills in Ethiopia’s large artisanal mining sector.

The study therefore covered the trades and technical skills required by the sector, as well as needs related to post-secondary degree specializations (geology, mining engineering, mining economics, environmental disciplines, etc.). The survey focused largely on educational institutions located near future mining sites (i.e. in Ethiopia’s regions), but also included a review of mining-related education programs available in Addis Ababa.
