TVET schools told to speed up competency-based training approach
While meeting both administrative and teaching staff, the minister also urged them to give students more chances of references in terms of modern text books, put emphasis on hands-on-training by extensively using training workshops and utilizing existing equipment for both training and income-generating activities.
TVET schools in general were also encouraged by the Minister to develop sustainable partnerships with the industry that will enable both industrial attachment and internship programs for students.
Putting more efforts in tripling the number of existing female students in TVET is also part of the packaged message the Minister delivered to school administrators. This is where TVET features in support for the ‘He for She’ campaign, as more female students are encouraged to acquire technical skills, especially science related ones.
