The Vanuatu Technical and Vocational Education and Training Sector Strengthening Program (VTVETSSP), ‘Skills for Economic Growth’, is an Australian government funded program which is implemented in partnership with the Vanuatu government. Through the VTVETSSP, TVET Centres have been established in three provinces as decentralised coordination and service delivery mechanisms for skills training and have now been integrated within the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET).
This document outlines the strategy the TVET Centres will use for the promotion of gender equality in the planning, decision-making and delivery of services in each province where a TVET Centre has been established. The intention is that through this strategy, gender will be ‘mainstreamed’ in all aspects of TVET Centre activities. The TVET Centres have been granted additional funding through the Pacific Women initiative to support the implementation of this strategy.
