Vanuatu TVET Sector Strengthening Program
The Vanuatu Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Sector Strengthening Program is an Australian Government funded Program which aims to support provincial 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 operates within existing structures and works with 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 and Torba provinces which coordinate a range of integrated training and business development support services.
TVET Centres aim to raise the status of women in Vanuatu through customised trainings and small business development services to support women’s economic empowerment.
With around 70% of the Vanuatu population aged under 25, enabling access to skill development services to increase employment opportunities and educational pathways is a priority area for the TVET Centres.
The TVET Centres work in partnership with disability advocacy associations to ensure people with disabilities access skill development services and are supported in income-generation activities. Click here to see our video.
