NAVTTC chief calls for commitment to quality training

NAVTTC chief calls for commitment to quality training

Islamabad: Attitude, commitment and interest of heads of institutes are the main players in increasing the quality of training.

This was stated by National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) Executive Director Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema, while addressing a meeting of the heads of more than 80 technical and vocational institutes here on Tuesday.

Thousands of trainees under the Prime Minister Youth Skill Development Programme (PMYSDP) Phase-IV are currently getting training in these institutes. "It is our top priority to enhance the quality of training so that our TVET graduates are in a better position to compete in the global market and secure jobs easily," he said.

He said the training environment and positive healthy activities played a pivotal role in building personalities of students. Zulfiqar Cheema asked the heads of the institutes to focus on the character building of the students and to enhance collaboration with the industry saying it will help their graduates get on-job training also.

He said monthly tests should be taken so that their skills are polished. The training under the PMYSDP is free and each student is given Rs3,000 monthly stipend, he said. The NAVTTC, through its job placement centre, would facilitate the graduates in securing jobs both in the local and international market, he said.

"If a graduate would want to set up his/her own business, we will provide then with the interest-free loan from the government. We will blacklist the institute not providing quality training," he said.

He said the NAVTTC had imparted technical and vocational training to thousands of young boys and girls under phases I, II and III of the PMYSDP. "Majority of these graduates are either working inside the country or doing jobs outside the country,"he said.
