The programme has been launched with the technical assistance of TVET Reform Support Programme (TVET RSP).
The TVET RSP, co-funded by the European Union, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the Federal Republic of Germany and implemented by German Technical Cooperation-GIZ is supporting this initiative through a MoU signed between NAVTTC and GIZ on 14th September last year at Prime Minster House Islamabad.
Opening ceremony of the training programme for the first batch of 20 lead trainers/e-tutors was held here on Tuesday at National Institute of Science and Technical Education (NISTE). The NAVTCC Executive Director Tariq Shafi Chak was the chief guest while Principal Advisor TVET RSP Dr. Julie Reverie from GIZ and high officials from the Ministry of Professional and Technical Training (MOPTT) and NISTE also participated in the ceremony.
The training of the first batch will be followed by three more batches to complete a total number of 100 lead trainers. These trained lead trainers will later on train 10,000 TVET teachers/instructors employed in different technical training institutes from Baluchistan, Gilgit Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Sindh, Punjab and Islamabad Capital Territory of public and private sector.
