Most kids go to school in Somaliland, gone were the days when classrooms were full of men in their Mid-20s. 

The next stage is more vocational schools to learn skills and better quality higher Education.

You are correct.

In comparison, there were 16 thousand students that sat for exams in Puntland and 15 thousand in Southern Somalia.

Hence, you can tell from that the almost 30 thousand students in Somaliland that are sitting for exams this year is the same as the combined total for Ex-Italian Somalia. Which means that in Somaliland almost it is running at full capacity, any kid who wants to go to school goes to school.

Happy faces, because they know their exams are in good safe hands.

 

 

Is it going to be computer assessed?

When are the results announced?

Are there prices for schools that had the most successful number of students (Like budget increase or extra scholarships...)

Give us some more info. This is very positive and lasts for more than a generation. Great investment.

The day we get service centers from Somaliland than from India and Pakistan will not be far.

One thing I would to point out is how much the population of Somalia grew since eighties. When I finished high school in the middle of eighties the total graduates who attended Halane military training were 6000 student both male and female. In 1980, it was just above 2000. 

In Borama area  there were three high schools, one in Gabiley, five including the technical school in Hargeisa, two in Burco including the technical; one school in Garoowe, ceerigaabo, Gaalkacayo, Dhuusamaeeb, Baydhabo, KIsmaayo , beledweyne and Jowhar. Muqdisho had probably had six or seven.

Today, Somaliland alone has 29,000 students taking the exams.

These Somali enclaves can not offer employment or life skill knowledge. The crash program of the Kacaan in the seventies produced large number of students. Among those 6000 , one thousand got the college exam and the rest had to compete the public service jobs. Even some of them were given five acre land in Shabbele Hoose for farming. At least the Kacaan was trying hard to find jobs for the graduates.

The problem throughout Somalia is there are zero technical and trade schools. Mugadishu probably has more than 50 universities and if the air condition in one of these hotels breaks down, they have to call a Kenyan technician. sAme with the electricians. What you have is a bunch of kids with fake degrees but can fix anything technological. It is a shame. It is NGO directed education. 

If these numbers grow , and reach hundreds of thousands students with no future , expect a real revolution.

With regards to youth unemployment, I think that is an African wide issue. Just look Europe, probably Somalis make up around 5%, the rest are from other parts of Africa including HoA nations like Eritrea etc.

But I agree, there needs to be more focus on Trade and Vocational training. I think market forces will catch up with the demand that exists for such skills. It is only a matter of time before youth realise that there is a career in Trades. Everyone now thinks an Office job is the career destination.

There are two technical schools in Hargeisa, one is focused on Electricians/Solar Technicians and the other is crafts like woodworking etc. They are both at high demands. I was watching young girls who were dreaming about becoming Solar PV installers. 

Overall, when you compare 10 years ago to today, there is a huge difference. 10 years ago, if a hydrolic machinery broke down, you were forced to either shutdown factory or get the technician from China. These days, the same skills are sourced from within or in the region Kenya/Ethiopia etc. 

Also, other professions that have seens tremendous improvements is the Health industry. Thanks mainly to Dr. Edna Adan's efforts, there are 3 schools that are providing Somaliland the health professionals it really lacks. The plan is to export health professionals by 2030.

Also Sheikh SOS School is now the reference school for IGAD for Animal health professional including Doctors (Vets) specialising in livestock.
