Vanuatu TVET Sector Strengthening Program

vanuatu tvet

The Vanuatu Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Sector Strengthening Program is an Australian Government funded Program which aims to support economic development through targeted skill development services.The Program encourages a more responsive and better quality training system that is able to meet the skill demands of the productive sectors in provincial communities.

The Program works to strengthen national and provincial structures within the TVET sector and builds the capacity of local training providers to deliver courses focused on employment and income-generation outcomes within a nationally recognised framework.

TVET Centres have been established in Sanma, Malampa, Torba and Tafea provinces which coordinate a range of demand-driven training and business development support services. The TVET Centres have now been formally integrated within the structure of the Ministry of Education and Training.
