The Graduation Ceremony for the third batch of Salesian TVET Centre Management Staff was held virtually on 1st of September 2021. This is after they successfully underwent a Capacity Development training. The program was designed specifically to improve the quality of service delivery in the Salesian TVET centers in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The nine-week training that commenced on 17th May ending on 26th July 2021, drew participants from Salesian Institutions in ten countries including Ethiopia, Tanzania, Sudan, South Africa, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Stefano Merante, the Skills Development and TVET Program Officer at the International Training Centre of ILO (ITC-ILO) moderated the ceremony. The ITCILO team expressed their gratitude to the participants for their active participation and willingness to learn. They urged them to make use of the knowledge gained and to work in harmony so as to achieve great results.
The participants had a chance to share their experiences during the training period with a majority indicating that the course was very practical and helped them reflect on the whole TVET system and how they could improve their own situations. They also indicated that the course will help them widen the scope of their worldview and hence discover the resources and opportunities available that can help improve the TVET centres.
Don Bosco Tech Africa team congratulated the participants for their hard work, persistence and perseverance amidst their busy schedules.
So far 259 participants have benefited from the training. The next training is set to begin in September 2021 for another French batch of TVET Centre managers and Staff.
The Training is part of an ongoing project organized by Don Bosco Tech Africa and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Germany through Don Bosco Mondo, Bonn.
