The Centre Kram Ngoy (CKN) is a technical and vocational training center in the field of electricity, electronics, industrial maintenance, rural electricity, renewable Energy, and so on. It has been operating in Cambodia since 1998. A three-day seminar on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) will be held at the center on 25-27 October 2010.
You may interested in the workshop, so I’d like to post the original press release from the CKN below:
Seminar on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Cambodia:
Access and Relevance
On 25-27 October 2010, at the National Institute of Education (NIE) in Phnom Penh (Norodom Blvd, corner Street Suramarit)
The “Centre Kram Ngoy” (CKN), with the support of UNESCO and of ILO, and in close cooperation of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training organizes a seminar-exhibition 25-27 October 2010, Phnom Penh. The seminar-exhibition will gather representatives from the government ministries, schools, International Organizations, NGOs, local associations, and private enterprises, to share information and experience, aiming at raising the awareness of the general public, to promote access and relevance in TVET among the youth.
It is widely recognized that the TVET in Cambodia is still not connecting with and meeting the demands of the labor market needed for a competitive economy.
This seminar aims at providing a platform for sharing good practices, information and experiences in order to motivate the youth and other members of Cambodian society for TVET as well as lay the foundations for better coordination between stakeholders.
We are convinced that TVET can demonstrate its value for the development of Cambodia if a student who is well prepared for the world of work, both in terms of general knowledge and at least one skill from a technical and vocational training program, can find a proper job or has the ability for self employment.
