It is seen as the education for children between the ages of eleven plus/twelve and seventeen plus/eighteen.

These are Access and Equity; Standard and Quality Assurance; Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET); Infrastructure; Funding; Resource Mobilization and Utilization; and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs). Each of these issues was discussed, problem identified and turn-around activities suggested or identified as having been taken
