Tripoli, 6 April 2013:
Eight . . .[restrict]UK-based companies specialising in the technical vocational training and education (TVET) sector, will be in Tripoli from tomorrow until 11 April on a trade visit.
The aim of the mission is for TVET providers and equipment suppliers to strengthen links with the Libyan National Board for Technical and Vocational Education (NBTVE). Part of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, NBTVE is responsible for over 100 higher education colleges and technical institutions across Libya.
TVET UK, which is leading the mission, said that one potential collaboration project could be the veterans’ programmes under the Warriors Affairs Commission (WAC) and Ministry of Labour.
The planned overhaul of the education system in Libya by the Ministries of Education and Higher Education & Scientific Research is another area with potential collaboration opportunities, TVET said.
Companies represented on the visit, which include Cambridge Regional College and Pearson Edexcel, could help make a real difference in Libya, said TVET UK’s executive director, Alan McArthur. He said they could: “Deliver programmes that will boost the employability of Libya’s younger generations and help to build a prosperous future for the country.”
Delegates are also looking to engage with other potential clients, partners and local representatives in the Libyan market, offering education and training solutions both in Libya and in the UK. On Monday 8 April there will be a business to business networking session from 15:00 to 18:00 at the Radisson Blu Al Mahary Hotel.
The delegation is supported by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and NBTVE.
