Imparting entrepreneurship education to students attending provincial technical vocational education and training (TVET) will be the focus, a workshop in Lae was told.
TVET provincial school operation director Rueben Aue said this during the opening ceremony of Know About Business workshop at Lae’s Phils Motel this week.
Mr Aue said provincial TVET institutions of community colleges, technical high schools and technical colleges are more skills driven and it is very vital for instructors and teachers to be equipped with relevant knowledge to deliver TVET education to expectation.
“Know about business is one subject taught and teachers, trainers and instructors teaching at provincial TVET institutions must understand the contents and contexts so they can undertake both tutorials and practical aspects in making youth entrepreneurial when they complete their studies,” he said.
Mr Aue said they aimed to make subjects and courses offered at community colleges, technical high schools and technical colleges sustainable for students learning.
Small and Medium Enterprises Corporation manager Peter Miria said the one-week workshop will enable participants to see the importance of business as a subject to make students and young people employable.
“Know about business is about mindset and attitude so we want trainers to be well trained and understand how they can apply to students and students can identify opportunities in the communities and utilised those skills learnt as an income for survival,” Mr Miria said.
