The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) government established Technical Education & Vocational Training Agency (TEVTA) to streamline technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in the province on Sunday.
Setting up this new body is part of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf-led (PTI) government’s ongoing reform agenda, being implemented in different public sector organisations to improve the quality of service delivery.
To make the delivery of the TVET linked to the market needs, the KPK government has also appointed known industrialist NaumanWazir as its first chairperson. The newly appointed chairperson presided over a one-day consultative workshop with the heads of the technical training institutes from all over KPK, where the future plans for the TEVTA were discussed at length.
The TVET Reform Support Programme, co-funded by the European Union, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Pakistan and the Federal Republic of Germany and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft fürInternationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, provided the technical assistance for the session.
