Policy actions to improve TVET teachers quality for market relevant skills delivery

The brief focused different issues relevant to the NSDP from the perspective of improving the quality of TVET teachers, trainers, instructors and master trainers for skills development.

NSDP 2011 emphasized on developing a well-trained cadre of instructors and trainers with necessary up-to-date technical skills. A system of recognition and reward for them should also be emphasised in the policy. Despite having these provisions in the policy, TVET sector could not attract many towards teaching profession and most of the existing teachers are not motivated enough either. Participants identified lack of motivation and the poor status of this profession as the underlying reasons. As teachers are the main drivers for developing skilled workforce, well-designed incentive system has been suggested for attracting skilled professionals into teaching.
