Policy Documents for Uganda’s Oil and Gas Sector
The Technical Vocational Education and Training Policy 2019
Government recognizes that effective technical skills are vital for the individual, enterprise and the economy since they lead to self-reliance at the family level, increased productivity, profits and higher incomes for the nation.
The TVET Policy therefore, is to support the creation of needed employable skills and competencies relevant for the national transformational labour market as opposed to just acquisition of educational certificates. It targets all Ugandans in need of skills for employment. The Policy emphasizes a flexible workplace-oriented (practical) delivery when juxtaposed with the theoretical knowledge acquisition under the current general education system and it shifts TVET management from the government led to Public- Private Partnerships (PPP) delivery.
