According to Angop, more than 150 thousand young nationals will benefit from this first phase.

Being in line with the launch of the White Paper on Higher Education, the project marks an essential multi-year investment in the country's education, especially in science, technology and innovation, informed Ndilu Mankenda Nkula, head of the General Secretariat of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, cited by Angop.

Among the purposes of the program is to increase the number of qualified graduates, with skills that meet the job market in preferred strategic fields.

Thus, according to Natasha Andrade, senior economist at the World Bank for Angola, in the next decade, the expansion and improvement in teacher training will benefit around 3.2 million students in the country.

According to the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, the Higher Education, Science and Technology project consists of a program that aims to support the "implementation of the Angolan Strategy for Higher Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, focusing in: access and equity (especially achieving gender parity), quality and relevance (prioritizing climate adaptation skills) and governance and financing".

The project comprises four components. According to the guardianship, the first concerns increasing "access and equity in higher education", while the second aims to reform "teacher training institutions to strengthen teacher preparation". The third and fourth components consist of "digital transformation" and the strengthening of "management, monitoring and evaluation capacity", respectively.
