The Commonwealth Association of Polytechnics in Africa (CAPA) is a grouping of technical and vocational education (TVE) institutions, mostly polytechnics, from various Commonwealth countries in Africa. CAPA was formed on the recommendation of the 7th Commonwealth Education Ministers Conference held in Accra, Ghana in March 1977. It was envisaged that it would play a role similar to that of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, but with a focus on Africa. CAPA has a membership of about 150 institutions in 17 African countries, and has the main objective of promoting TVET technology transfer and skills development in Africa. CAPA meets twice a year, May/June and November/December, in one of its member countries.
