THE Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA) has launched a special project aimed at enhancing employ ability in Mtwara Region.

To be implemented by three parties, VETA Mtwara (vocational training), BG Tanzania (technical and financial support) and VSO (technical and capacity building support), the project will promote vocational training as an employment enhancer.

The project was launched early this week by the Vice- President, Dr Mohamed Gharib Bilal. In his speech, Dr Bilal appreciated the efforts by the three organisations for enabling the project, to be based at the VETA in Mtwara.

Dr Bilal requested other companies to support Vocational Education and Training like British Gas and Volunteer Service Organisation. According to the Director General of VETA, Engineer Zebadiah Moshi, the project is expected to improve the employability of the local population in Mtwara Region and in Tanzania by improving training standards at the Mtwara centre, with particular focus on the needs of the oil and gas industry and related services.

The project aims at raising standards for skills in line with internationally recognized levels in Food Preparation, Plumbing, Welding, Carpentry, Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Electrical Installation and Maintenance, Laboratory Operations and English.
