Government set to establish specialised vocational centres

THE government is set to establish specialized vocational training centres to plug the gaps for skilled labors currently depending on the state-run Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA).
Minister for Education, Science, Technology and Vocational Training Minister Prof Joyce Ndalichako explained yesterday in Dar es Salaam that the plan will help decongest demands for VETA in areas facing no-vocational training centres.
“We will work with private sector to introduce small-scale specialized centres that costs less than 1bil/-. Establishment of full-fledged vocational trainings are very expensive costing at least 9bil/-,” she said.
The plan, according to the minister will help reach more places lacking vocational training centres. She however explained that the government is working on to speed up renovation of various workshops to meet the current demand.
“VETA is empowering the community. More Tanzanians are now self-employed due to knowledge and skills they gained at the centres,” she said noting that there has been a good improvement in innovations amongst various technology engineered by the authority.
Prof Ndalichako said the ministry will work with the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH) to market the new technologies invented by Tanzanians to help transform the economy
