Financing community Polytechnics in Uganda

Abstract:

Community college model institutions in Uganda seek to improve access for underserved students and better align training with the economic and social realities of this developing country. The government of Uganda has begun establishing and funding community college model institutions on a limited basis but needs more information about the value of this form of education to determine plans for expansion. Improved political stability in the last two decades has helped Uganda achieve one of the fastest growing economies in Africa; however, it continues to face significant challenges including infrastructure gaps, internal budgetary pressures, and high birth rates. Furthermore, in 2007, universal secondary education policies started in selected schools and now, more students are accessing secondary schooling than ever before. The so-call “bulge” of matriculating primary and secondary school completers has created excess demand for higher education. In response, new public and private community college model institutions have been established including, business colleges, technical schools, farm schools, and community polytechnics. Community college model institutions reach only a very limited portion of the unmet demand for post-primary and post-secondary students. This presentation will share findings from a a recent study that examined closely the services and operations of one type of Ugandan college, known as the Community Polytechnic. The study, will pay special attention to the financing structures of community polytechnics.
