#Guinea : While public education schools have had disastrous results in various national examinations, vocational training institutes have achieved respectable performance despite difficult working conditions.

The director of this institution could not hide his happiness: “Following the results of the final evaluation at the end of the year, the CFP Tonga team is very happy with this decision. It is not surprising that many of the republics are ranked first in various fields today, notes Madifing Geeta. This manager adds: “25% of training time is allocated to theory and 75% to practice”.

It is a great satisfaction for the winners. This is particularly the case of Abu Bakr Bangura: “I never thought I had that status myself, but by God’s grace it became a reality.”

He was amazed at the difficult conditions under which we were working.
Today, the Guinean authorities are above all trying to encourage Guinean students to go for vocational training. And so far it has not succeeded.
