The project implementation and management team is based in Malawi and supported by UNESCO’s Regional Office for Southern Africa in Harare, UNESCO-HQ in Paris and UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre in Bonn. The team is responsible for coordination of activities and management of the operational budget of the project based on an Inception Plan (including planned commitments and disbursements) plus annual work plans prepared and subsequently approved by the European Union Delegation (EUD).
A Project Steering Committee (PSC) is established to guide the programme. The PSC meets bi-annually and more often if needed. The chair of the PSC is the Minister of Labour, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development and members include representatives of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Industry and Trade, TEVETA, representatives of the private sector, UNESCO and the NAO Support Unit. The EU participates as an observer. The Steering Committee is the body responsible for the general oversight, policy guidance and monitoring of the programme.
