Together with the UNESCO offices in Abuja (Nigeria) and Dakar (Senegal), the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will host a workshop to draft a sub-regional curriculum framework for the training of trainers in bilingual education. The workshop will bring together education specialists from West Africa and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) to work on producing the first draft of the sub-regional framework. Many countries in the West African sub-region are working to include African languages and cultures into their education systems by using bilingual education in their curricula.

This is a pioneer reform process that aims to improve the quality of education by contextualizing learning in multilingual and multicultural African societies.
