Publication content

The Transforming Employability for Social Change in East Africa (TESCEA) project (2018-2021) worked
to redesign courses and transform teaching and learning in higher education in Tanzania and Uganda to
help address the disconnect between the teaching and learning that students experience in university
and the needs of the labour market or what they need to create their own entrepreneurial ventures when
they graduate.
A crucial element of TESCEA’s approach to ensure that students develop the skills they need when they
graduate was to involve stakeholders from outside the universities in this process. This learning paper
discusses a key approach to this, the Joint Advisory Groups (JAGs).
