WDA launches practical exams for TVET students
He said the practical exams initiative also encourages pre-final students to start preparing themselves for exams earlier.
“This year we want to put more efforts in increasing capacity for TVET schools that teach agriculture and animal resources .Therefore practical exams in this year were launched in schools that teach agriculture such as food processing, animal treatment, forestry so that they help the community to develop,” he said.
He said that since TVET schools started that there have been positive results since the graduates easily get jobs and are highly looked for by employers and private sector for employment.
“We want to work with private sector so that TVET schools deliver on what they are expected for on labor market,” he noted.
Gasana mentioned that there is target that every TVET school should have an incubation center for putting in practice acquired skills and that they should also include financial literacy in teaching programs that allow entrepreneurship skills on labor market.
“In the beginning of next year, we will build 4 big incubation centers under the financial support from India in Huye, Rubavu, Nyarugenge and Nyagatare with all necessary equipment. We will also build more 14 TVET schools so as to increase number of students,” he noted.
