My education was very competitive so I can function here.”He said that despite an individual being over-qualified in his country, most often they are considered to be under-qualified in developed countries due to the quality of education provided to them. Competitive education was said to allow persons to function in different societies across the world as their qualifications are recognized.“Often times when they go for an interview with an employer they are told that they are under qualified,” said Ndahi.An example in support of the ILO statements is the recently un-accredited medical school at the University of Guyana.
