Liberia: Stakeholders Brainstorm On Draft National TVET Policy

The Government of Liberia (GoL) through the Ministry of Youth and Sports will today, Friday, March 14, 2014 hold a day-long national technical vocational education and training (TVET) stakeholders' forum to validate the draft national TVET Policy designed a year ago.

The draft policy, among other things, seeks the formation of a national commission on TVET that will regulate the TVET sector, standardize a national TVET curriculum, accredit TVET providers, and put in place a national qualification framework to standardize a TVET certification regime in Liberia.

When validated, the National TVET Commission will use labor market information to direct TVET needs of the country.

The forum, which takes place at the Ministry of Youth and Sports in Paynesville, will bring together major TVET stakeholders, including the Ministries of Education, Agriculture, the private sector, TVET provides, UNESCO, the World Bank and FAO.
