About the Award: 
The advent of COVID-19 has exacerbated challenges in Africa’s education system and reinforces the need for fit for context, innovative and scalable solutions in education. DOTSS[1] provides an approach for reorienting Africa’s education and training systems to meet the knowledge, competencies, skills, innovation and creativity required to nurture African core values and promote sustainable development at the national, sub-regional and continental levels as espoused in CESA.

IEA Call

The AU Innovating Education in Africa Call invites innovators to propose new and practical education innovations with the potential for sustainability, scalability and replication on a wide scale. We are looking to mobilize continental education innovators to rethink solutions that will help address education and skills development challenges in Africa especially as countries emerge from COVID-19.

We aim to create change by:
  • Incentivizing innovators to identify major education and skills development challenges in Africa;
  • Sourcing innovative ideas and solutions to those challenges for adoption replication and scale-up; and
  • Encouraging innovation partnerships involving education and training institutions, governments and other key stakeholders.
Type: 
Entrepreneurship

Eligibility: 
Applications will be accepted from citizens of AU Member States leading an organisation that meets the following criteria.
  • Successfully implementing an education innovation in one or more AU Member States with verifiable outcomes.
