THE Technical Vocational Education Training is giving school dropouts a second chance in life.
National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop (pictured) and Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko are using TVET to help girls and boys dropping out from schools.
The objective is to train and develop their skills and character so that they can contribute to their communities.
At a graduation at the Kumul Training Institute on Monday, Tkatchenko said such institutions offered a range of courses which were linked to mining.
He said education did not stop after one graduated from such institutions.
“Make the best out of it,” he said.
He told the three female students who graduated that women should apply for occupations dominated by men.
Most students were sponsored by Tkatchenko under his five-year development plan.
Institute director Max Kuri thanked the two MPs for their sponsorship of the students.
TVET helps learners to acquire skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to enter the world of work.
A quality TVET programme plays an essential role in promoting a country’s economic growth and contributing to poverty reduction as well as ensuring the social and economical inclusion of marginalised communities.
