Inter-University council launches portal for improving data

Addis Ababa, ETHIOPIA: THE Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) has launched an online Monitoring and Evaluation portal for collecting, analysing and sharing real time data among technical and vocational institutions in the region.

The portal will also be used by various stakeholders including policy and decision makers and development partners for informed data driven decision making.

It is expected to improve the availability of quality and relevance of data collected from Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Institutes in the region.

Availability of accurate and reliable data is one of the major challenges facing higher education institutions in East Africa.

For instance, the Demographics of African Faculty in the East African Community (DAF-EAC) study undertaken by IUCE together with a consortium of partners published in 2023 established that there were challenges in accessing quality and reliable data on higher education in the region.

According to the study, there is inadequate documentation and lack of centralised data collection and sharing systems within countries in the region.

Speaking at the launch of the portal, IUCEA Deputy Executive Secretary Professor Idris Rai was optimistic that the portal will create a more structured and organised approach to data collection and management among TVET institutions.

“As part of the EASTRIP Project, TVET institutes will be trained on how to maintain accurate records to enhance the quality and reliability of the data collected. The data collected will be consolidated in the central portal to make it easily accessible to policymakers, researchers and other stakeholders in higher education,” he explained.

The portal was developed by a team of IT experts from Dar es Salaam Institute of Technology (DIT), one of IUCEA member institutions, and a beneficiary of the World Bank-funded EASTRIP Project. DIT is Regional Flagship TVET Institute in ICT.

For his part, DIT Principal Professor Preksedis Ndomba expressed gratitude to the World Bank Group for the financial support through the EASTRIP project and to IUCEA for giving his institute the opportunity and trust to develop the portal that enhances project monitoring and evaluation.

The development of the portal was supported by EASTRIP Project funded by the World Bank.

IUCEA is an institution of the East African Community (EAC) responsible for the coordination of higher education and research in the region.
