(TBC), Papua New Guinea
In-Country Program

| Program Focus |

The role of the community and private sectors is vital in the advancement of the educational system, especially in TVET. It brings together human resources and institutional capabilities to maximize productivity and adaptability, which is very challenging.

Public TVET in PNG includes Department of Education – TVET institutions, National Training Council, National Apprentice Trade Testing Board, and Department of Higher Education, Science and Technology while the Private refers to private institutions (permitted and non-permitted) and the industries and general population as the Communities. PPCP for TVET is a timely program in line with the current technological changes and economic developments in PNG.

Mutual cooperation ensures mutual development and greater accomplishments if proper implementation of processes and procedures are observed and achieved without reducing the other despite varied degree of functions, responsibilities and capacities.
