GIZ, TVT and German Ambassador evaluate vocational training program


Gilgit Baltistan, July 7, 2021 (TDI) —The Technical and Vocational Education and Training support program instituted by GIZ and the federal governments of Pakistan has been helping people in the country with great employment opportunities. The German Ambassador Bernard Schlagheck visited the vocational training institute in Gilgit and a token of support to the GB’s government in the training program.
The program focuses on the potential and human capital in the agriculture and energy sector which are lagging due to a lack of skilled human resources. According to a report by the TVT, 27 percent of the youth complete secondary school, and even a smaller number of people have employable skills. Most of the workforce acquires skills through informal and traditional Ustad-Shagird systems. Besides, the market does not offer 1.8 million young people enough jobs, which adds to the problem.
The current program is the second phase of the program, started in 2018 for five years. The program, supported by European Union, Germany, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy continues to support the youth through the national TVET Policy, National Vocational Qualifications Framework, and the Competency-Based Training and Assessment. The second phase goals are to increase private sector engagement, human resource development, implementation of good policy and governance, and lastly, the implementation of reformed TVET policies.
