WINDHOEK, 24 JAN (NAMPA) – The Namibia Training Authority (NTA) has in recent months entered into key agreements to support the institution in the realisation of its strategic objectives.
The institution has to date entered into an agreement with the Murray and Roberts Engineering and Constructors Company.
The agreement is aimed at establishing and implementing regular job attachments and internship programmes for Namibian trainees and trainers.
It has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Namibia Institute of Public and Administration Management (NIPAM), under which professional training and development opportunities are made available to the management and staff of the NTA and Vocational Training Centres under its supervision.
NTA's Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anna Nghipondoka said the NTA also signed a MoU with Peace Corps Namibia, under which volunteers are being dispatched to the vocational training centres to support training in entrepreneurship and the development of business skills amongst trainees.
Another agreement is with the Namibia Careers Expo under which the two parties will jointly stage a National Skills Expo at the end of next month (February 2015), aimed at promoting technical and vocational careers amongst young Namibians.
“The NTA has over recent months worked very hard to ensure that we add further value to current training efforts aimed at growing the number of qualified vocational and technical practitioners so desperately needed for our country's economic growth,” she noted.
