Description : The promotion of technical and vocational education and training for industrialisation, economic development, wealth creation and poverty eradication demands policies and strategies that address the cross-cutting issues of quality and relevance of training, employability, collaboration between training institutions and employers, accreditation of training providers (in the formal, nnn-formal and informal sectors), assessment, certification, internal and external quality assurance of training programmes, funding, and instructor framing. This calls for a TVET system that is competency-based and employment led, with proficiency testing oflearners and trainees as proof of competence. TVET should also be seen and acknowledged by all stakeholders as a valid passport to a well-paid job or self-employment or higher education and not as an alternative educational opportunity fit only lor early school leavers, the less academically endowed or the poor.
