The 13 chapters in this book depict the challenges facing African nations in their efforts to develop their technical and vocational education (TVE) systems. Chapter 1, "TVE in Africa: A Synthesis of Case Studies" (B. Wanjala Kerre), presents a synthesis of the case studies in which the following major trends taking place within the existing socioeconomic context are discussed: TVE within existing educational structures; cooperation between TVE institutions and enterprises; major challenges facing the nations in their efforts to develop TVE; and the innovative measures undertaken in response to the problems and constraints experienced. The remaining 12 chapters are individual case studies giving a more detailed picture of natural efforts and challenges encountered in the development of TVE. Chapters 2-8 focus on the role of TVE in educational systems: "TVE in Cameroon" (Lucy Mbangwana); "TVE in Congo" (Gilbert Ndimina); "TVE in Ghana" (F. A. Baiden); "TVE in Kenya" (P. O. Okaka); "TVE in Madagascar" (Victor Monantsoa); "TVE in Nigeria" (Egbe T. Ehiametalor); and "TVE in Zimbabwe" (N. N. Munetsi). Chapters 9-13 address policy and legislation in TVE to enhance cooperation with the world of work: "Education, Training, and Employment in Burkina Faso" (Joseph Kabore); "Cooperation between Training Institutions and the Industrial Commercial and Agricultural Enterprises in Cote d'Ivoire" (Aska Kouadio); "Relationship between TVE and Enterprises in Senegal" (Oumar Sock); "Cooperation between TVE Institutions and Enterprises in Swaziland" (B.
