The Bulolo Technical Vocational School and Umi Technical Vocational School are recipients of the EU-funded Human Resource Development Programme phase two.
The EU has selected 10 TVET schools around the country to be part of the project, costing more than K37.5 million.
National Planning and Monitoring Department aid coordinator Yvonne Vavine said infrastructures would be built and equipment supplied.
Vavine said the infrastructure development was part of the Government’s plan to increase skills training on technical trade.
The programme aims to strengthen vocational education through the delivery of access, quality and management.
Department of Education chief auditor Etwin Apai said the groundbreaking ceremony at Bulolo marked the start of construction.
The Umi Vocational School held its ground-breaking ceremony yesterday.
