The Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) Sector Support Programme in Pakistan supports the reform of the vocational training sector in Pakistan by supporting the governance system, developing and implementing qualifications for vocational training personnel along the newly introduced National Vocational Qualifications Framework (NVQF) using the Competence-Based Training and Assessment (CBT&A) approach in close cooperation with national and regional organisations.
In this context, the Programme provides methodological and trade-specific skill upgradation training for Chief Master Trainers, Master Trainers, instructors and assessors and advises political decision-makers and institutions on the comprehensive introduction of the NVQF and the CBT&A.
