Youths give a thumbs up to vocational training programme

Khmer Times, Cambodia, 16 June 2020 - Youths have given the thumbs up to the government’s Technical Vocational Education and Training programme after it helped them to secure jobs because of the skills they learned.

The Labour Minstry yesterday celebrated National TVET Day, which aims to encourage more youths to learn vocational skills to improve their job prospects.

This year’s National TVET Day was themed “TVET makes life better”. Due to COVID-19, the government held the celebration online by working on producing digital content to raise public awareness about the significance of the programme.


In Vora, who studied to be an electrician, said his diploma enabled him to secure a job with Electricite Du Cambodge in Svay Rieng province.

“After I graduated as an electrician, it changed my life. I now have a job with a state institution in Svay Rieng province,” he said. “I have income to improve my life and support my family. I thank my school for training me.”

Chiet Koka, who studied engineering, said she encourages other women to study the course and stop thinking that only men are suitable for it.
