Technical Training Programme
The Technical Training Programme of ETC aims to contribute to human resource development in technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and to strengthen the organizational and institutional capacity of TVET providers through tailor-made projects. The programme works with partners (clients) that offer post-basic formal or informal technical and vocational education and training, largely at lower and middle levels. Examples of partners are technical schools, vocational training centres, educational institutions, small and medium enterprises and associations of these.
The programme is implemented in more than 15 countries in Asia and Africa, and receives financial support from international NGOs and private foundations.
The programme focuses on:
A total of 30-40 projects are implemented per year. In most of the projects, training and advisory services are offered through regular short-term interventions (1-4 weeks each, depending on the subject). A team of project coordinators/consultants , all provided by ETC, is responsible for managing the program. They provide technical assistance in all stages of the project cycle. The programme also makes use of a network of specialized technical training experts. These experts come from both the Netherlands and from developing countries, with the aim of encouraging the South-South transfer of knowledge and skills and information sharing.
