Mandalay to offer vocational training in 11 occupations

The Mandalay Region government will conduct vocational training for people aged 18 to 40 to improve their job skills or help them start their own businesses.

The training, which will be held before the year end, will be open to those who finished their basic education.

It will be held at the Government Technology High School and four information and technology schools in the region.

Students will have a choice of 11 courses, including electronics, welding, farm machinery and motorcycle maintenance.

“We will have courses for 11 kinds of jobs. We will introduce those who finish the training to business people at job fairs to jump-start their careers,” said U Than Zaw, deputy director general of the Ministry of Education.

Around 500 trainees will be accepted in the first phase of the project, and it is expected that at least 70 percent of them will get jobs.

“There is a two-year vocational training programme under the ministry, and a three-year diploma course at the Government Technology Institute,” he said. We have scheduled it so that even those who are working can attend the training.”

The training will be available at schools in the capital Nay Pyi Taw, in Ywama village on Inle Lake and Lashio in Shan State, in Meiktila and Mandalay in Mandalay, in Taungoo in Bago Region, Hpa-an in Kayin State, and Kalay in Sagaing Region.

The programme will be held three times a year for four years and expects to train 41,000 people. – Translated
