CINOP Global works in developing countries. What is the effect of your projects?

In quite a number of our projects we work on strengthening vocational educational institutions to professionalise and adapt curricula in accordance to the needs and development of the (local or national) labour market. Our sponsors apply external evaluation and monitoring instruments that will indicate the progress of a project. If necessary a project can be adapted with the new insights or requirements.
Through a better education that is consistent with the labour market, students in developing countries can find a job more easily.
