A top official of the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) said here on Thursday that TVTC will be opening another 67 colleges to accommodate 150,000 applicants for technical training which will include 38 colleges for boys and 29 for girls.
Commenting on the new budget, TVTC Gov. Ali Al-Gafis said that the SR5.27 billion allotted this year for the TVTC projects will help in the implementation of construction projects.
It will also boost their operational performance while attracting international agencies for independent operation of the new colleges.
Al-Ghafis expressed appreciation to the Kingdom’s leadership for its generous support in providing all possible avenues for citizens to play their role in creating economic growth.
He reposed his confidence in the new budget allocated for TVTC which not only provides services to the government facilities, but also extends to strategic partnerships with international training institutions specialized in the field of practical training, with high efficiency that will help the rehabilitation of Saudi national cadres to meet the needs of the labor market.
“TVTC will be launching new development projects in March as part of its “Capacity Building” program. It aims to improve the performance of all technical colleges by encouraging innovation in technical and vocational training expertise” he said.
He added: “It will also work to enhance skills training for employees at these colleges that would reflect positively on the training process and meet the needs of the Saudi labor market for a trained national work force.”
According to him, TVTC has implemented various development programs, including electronic training, a system based on modern training methods to deliver information to the trainee online in order to build interactive training available everywhere and anytime, and promoting the concept of “self-training, “which is one of the leading initiatives of the enterprise.
