Funded by the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy – the TVET Sector Support Programme handed-over seven digital learning aids/ simulators to the Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Mughalpura, an institute of the Punjab Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA).
The learning aids were produced by the graduates trained under the workplace-based training model in Sindh under TVET SSP. The Centre of Excellence in Mughalpura, where the ceremony was held, has also been upgraded with the support of TVET SSP.
A total of 51 simulators have been produced with the support of TVET SSP in 4 institutes in Sindh. A total of 23 simulators will be delivered to Punjab TEVTA institutes in Lahore, Okara, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Gujrat, Lodhran and Sargodha. Private sector enterprises have played a key role in research and development, assembling as well as quality assurance of the simulators during the production process. These learning aids/ simulators will be vital for competency-based training delivery in automobile, HVAC, electrical and renewable energy related trades. The Provincial Technical Education and Vocational Training Authorities (TEVTAs), in close collaboration with the TVET Sector Support Programme, are equipping many young people with competency-based training and preparing them for employment opportunities for skilled workers. With the help of these learning aids in the form of simulators, young men and women can come forward and learn innovative skills.
The event was attended by development partners, stakeholders from the public and private sectors, staff of the CoE and media representatives. The TVET Sector Support Programme is funded by the European Union (EU), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Royal Norwegian Embassy and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC).
