TECHNICALLY skilled manpower is a necessity for Papua New Guinea for mineral resource development, Chimbu’s provincial education adviser Essy Walkaima says.
He pointed that out while addressing the Kundiawa Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) graduation last Friday.
“It should be a must for every person in PNG to have technical skills,” he said.
“After any white collar job, one must always return to the village, that is where the application of technical skills must be made to maintain life.”
He congratulated 127 students who graduated in trade skills and challenged them to utilise what they had learnt.
According to the manager of the school Joe Arel, the main objective of the skills training was to include the excluded back into the main stream and enable them to live better lives.
“When someone has a skill, he or she can contribute meaningfully towards the development of the country. Life-coping skills programme is introduced throughout the community college which is meant to address the attitude problem facing our society,” Arel said.
He gave a general outline of the achievements of the school this year, when he first took over as the manager of the institution.
Arel urged the graduating students to be faithful in what they did to make a difference in their respective trade skills.
“It is for the first time in the history of Kundiawa TVET school to issue full set tools to the graduating students in their respective trades,” Arel said.
