Executive Director NAVTTC, Dr. Nasir Khan meeting with Federal Minister For Education, Mr. Shafqat Mahmood


Tuesday, October 30, 2018: Education and Skill Development is the top priority of the present government; Pakistan's future lies in providing marketable skills to our youth and enable them to earn respectable livelihood. This was said by the Federal Minister for Education & professional Training, Mr. Shafqat Mahmood, while addressing a meeting at National Vocational & Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) HQs. He said that we will introduce such systems on the style of successful models of developed countries, which will not only improve the quality of education but also enhance the standards and provision of skills. "We will soon make vocational education a part of traditional education in the schools so that those children who cannot continue education can be attracted to getting skills" he said. For this purpose such trades would be identified which could be introduced at the school level. The minister emphasized on the importance of providing international-level skills to Pakistani youth so that they are in a better position to secure jobs abroad. He directed NAVTTC to prepare up-to-date databank of the country's TVET sector. National Skills University would be active soon where our focus would be to prepare world class master trainers, he said. To bring informally trained workforce into the mainstream economy under the system of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is among the main objectives of NAVTTC. The minister directed to take such steps which would increase the recognition and acceptability of NAVTTC’s certificates around the globe. The Federal Minister said that the target of the present government is that all the youth who enter the job market are equipped with marketable skills. He said that recommendations of National Task Force on Education would be finalized soon and the Prime Minister would be briefed accordingly. He said that we will set up an Inter-provincial Skill Forum which will include all the provincial TEVTAs. Dr. Nasir Khan, the Executive Director of NAVTTC, gave detailed briefing to the Federal Minister on the recent initiatives and reforms by NAVTTC.
