Consultancy services for Certification of newly developed Curriculum in five new Sectors
We have developed a Project in Afghanistan in Joint Venture with Cambridge Internatrional training and Education (U.K.) http://www.cambridge-international.co.uk/ and in association with Ghani Consultancy (Afghanistan). The projects is funding by HARAKAT - Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility Organization. www.harakat.af/
There is a critical shortage of skilled and semi‐skilled labour in Afghanistan. Decades of war, low level of literacy and educational attainment, as well as lack of modern training programs and facilities have hampered supply of qualified workforce: technicians, professionals, financial specialists and managers. The existing training programs are unable to equip Afghan youth in new skills demanded by employers.
The current technical education standards, curriculum and teacher training material do
not comply and respond to the demand aroused by today’s workforce needs. This particularly applies to the new occupations and professions that have been or will be added to the technical education and training. Also, the level of involvement of private sector in providing the technical education and vocational trainings does not go in line with the national level needs.
There is lack of capacity in the public sector to work with the private sector and introduce demand driven fields in the public vocational and training institutes. The project aims to build institutional capacity both in NSDP and DM-TVET to introduce occupations in the TVIs that are based on the demand from the private sector and are in accordance to the minimum competency based standards.
The project will provide the labour market demand and supply information for the specific emerging areas:
- Food processing and packaging and storage,
- Tourism and hotel management,
- Carpet Weaving and Woven Handicrafts
The information provided by this study helping the education and training providers (public, private and NGOs) to design and deliver their education /training programs based on the labour market demands which eventually contribute to the employability
of the graduated TVET trainees.
