Africa is in the early stages of a technological revolution that is changing the nature of work on the continent. As governments move towards transforming secondary education into a pathway for employment, new thinking is needed on how to address the challenges in providing quality, relevant education for youth in Africa.   

As a leading business owner and representative of the growing industrial and commercial sector in Uganda, we invite you to participate in the following discussions:

-          Priorities required to prepare youth for the future of work;

-          Recommendations on rethinking and reforming secondary education;

-          Views on bringing education and the private sector into closer dialogue and engagement.

The Mastercard Foundation is undertaking a substantial research effort to examine how secondary education could better prepare African youth for success in the labor force.  Pivotal to prioritizing findings and ensuring the relevance of the report’s recommendations are consultations with employers. 

Are you a senior leader at a Small and Growing Business (SGB) or a company that supports these businesses? Do you hire people with a secondary school education? Join us for a round table discussion on the future of secondary education and relevance for the workforce. Your perspective is highly valued and will inform the report and policy recommendations.
