Our vocational training centers serve as catalysts for economic growth and social development by equipping students with practical skills for the workforce.

He said, “The introduction of income generating units within these centers presents a unique opportunity to not only enhance the sustainability of the institutions but also to provide real-world entrepreneurial experience to our students. By integrating income generating activities such as small-scale businesses, workshops, or service-oriented enterprises, we can create a dynamic learning environment that fosters innovation, creativity, and self-reliance.

We must ensure that the proposed income generating units complement the existing curriculum and enhance the learning experience rather than detract from it.” Said Mr. Mititi.
