Deploying Interactive On-line Networking Platform for Improving Quality and Relevance of African University Graduates to Labour Markets
The project broadly aims at strengthening the capacities in three universities in Kenya and Uganda towards reforming graduate curricula, graduate training and education with greater participation of the agricultural labour markets and a large pool of global expertise. Currently graduates and their lecturers have limited interaction with the labour market due to a lack of effective administration and academic frameworks to open opportunities for graduates to learn practical lessons relevant to the needs of the labour market.
This action targets closing this gap by deploying innovative interactive online technology networking platform to promote the institutional networking of universities and a global pool of professionals and the labour market. The platform will enable the participating universities to efficiently and effectively supervise, mentor, track and network their graduates, graduate alumni and faculty staff within a community of researchers, academics, practicing professionals and the agricultural labour market.
The coordinator of the project is Egerton University and partners are Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Makerere University, RUFORUM and AGRINATURA.
