Within the framework of the Vocational Education and Training Programme for the Member States of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC-VET) and in line with the OIC-TVET Strategic Roadmap 2020-2025, SESRIC, in collaboration with the Qatar National Committee for Education, Culture and Science, organised a Training Course on “Strengthening Institutional Capacity on Vocational Qualifications” on 13-15 December 2021 through an online video conferencing platform.

The training course was provided by competent experts from the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNAQ) for the benefit of 73 experts and executives from the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Authorities and relevant national institutions of the 27 OIC member countries.

The main objective of the training course was to provide insights into the mechanisms and practices of developing vocational qualifications in order to create and operate a quality-assured national qualifications system in line with labour market demands. The course also focused on the relevant technical subjects such as; building quality assurance capacity for TVET education, the role of higher education institutions in supporting TVET education, building applied research capacity for TVET education, entrepreneurship and innovation for TVET education and experiential learning and 21st-century skills for TVET education.

The OIC-VET is an initiative of SESRIC officially launched at the COMCEC Economic Summit held in Istanbul, Turkey, on 09 November 2009. The Centre developed and designed this Programme to support and contribute to the efforts of the OIC member countries towards addressing the challenges and limitations faced in the area of TVET. The Programme also aims to enhance the quality of TVET systems in the OIC member countries, which in turn contribute to the development and competitiveness of their economies. SESRIC, in its capacity as the Executing OIC Organ of the Programme, monitors the implementation of the “OIC-TVET Strategic Roadmap 2020-2025”, and regularly submits the progress reports towards the implementation of the Roadmap to the Ministerial Sessions and the Follow-up Committee Meetings of the COMCEC.
