Specialists Stress Importance of Technical Training

By Calvin Brooks


MONROVIA, Jan 15 (LINA) - A Program Specialist of the U.N. Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has underscored the need for Liberia to build the capacity of young people in Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET).

Keith Holmes observed that empowering youths with technical and vocational skills would minimize the unemployment situation facing the country.

He was speaking Wednesday at the beginning of a two-day TVET Capacity Assessment and Development Workshop organized by UNSECO in collaboration with the Liberian Government and partners held at the Ministry of Education. 

Meanwhile, the Program Coordinator of the Monitoring and Coordination Unit of UNSECO has called on government to give priority to technical education to strengthen the skills of youths for key employment in the society.

Mr. Bruno Mesquita Valle said the development of the youths should not just be in the academic area, but attention should also be given to technical and vocational education which is crucial for nation building.

Mr. Valle emphasized that if the recovery of Liberia should move forward, technical education must be supported to empower young Liberians in the near future with technical skills.

The workshop brought together participants from various government ministries and agencies to assess the TVET capacity of Liberia.
