The second meeting of the National Council on Vocational Education and Training (NCVET) was held earlier this month. It was organized by the Millennium Challenge Account-Mongolia (MCA-M) Technical and Vocational Education and Training Project in cooperation with the Policy and Operational Framework Reform project.
The meeting, following an earlier one in September last, was attended by 40 participants, including NCVET members, nominated chairs of the Sector Councils for Construction, Mining and Food Processing, the project team and representatives of MCA-M. They discussed rules and procedures for the NCVET and Sector Councils, their financing needs, work plans for 2010 and issues related to the National Agency for Vocational Education and Training (NAVET). Views were exchanged on best practices related to private-public partnership, cooperation between NCVET and other key vocational education and training institutions such as the NAVET, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, and the Ministry of Social Welfare and Labor.
NCVET was established to help develop the TVET system to meet market demands and support public-private partnership.
