TEVTA spells out ambitious plan for youth training

PESHAWAR, June 11 (APP): The Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has chalked out an ambitious plan to impart vocational training to the youth. “We have planned effective measures to be taken on war footing to impart technical training to unemployed youth of the province on international standard,” said Chairman TEVTA Nauman Wazir. Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Wazir spelled out his priorities for making all the vocational training institutes of the province vibrant and effective. President KP Chamber of Commerce and Industry Zahid Shinwari was also present on the occasion. tevta“Our focus will be on providing job training where students will study for a week and then go to do practical work in different industries of the province,” Nauman added. TEVTA has also made agreements with Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Hunar Foundation Karachi for launching most latest and demanding vocational training courses both for the students and teachers. Chairman TEVTA said his vision was to produce skill labour which could get jobs in the province, other parts of the country and abroad. We wanted to contribute 40 percent youth for KP, 40 for Punjab and others provinces and 20 percent for abroad, he added. The determination of present government in providing vocational training could be gauged from the fact that the funds for provision of equipment during practical work in vocational institutes has been enhanced from Rs15 million to Rs970 million. He said TEVTA had decided to reduce student fees from Rs.17000 to Rs. 16,000 and most the expenditure of training would be borne by donor agencies without putting any burden on government.  ]]>
