Vocational and Education Project
Project background

Mongolia’s vocational education system has not evolved to serve the demands of a modern, private-sector led economy. The capacity of this system to teach core technical skills and provide critical labor information is weak, training equipment is limited and outdated, and instructors are not well prepared to teach. Moreover, essential public-private partnerships to ensure that students receive high quality, demand-driven training are largely absent, and credentialing systems are substandard. 
MCA-Mongolia Vocational Education and Training project is making big investment and substantial input to TVET sector reform through implementation of various activities including support to establishment of a new vocational education system that enables quality and demand driven training and improvement of learning environment of TVET schools. The project stands out of other similar projects and programs as it has sector wide approach.         

Project objective

The overarching goal of the Project is to increase employment and income among unemployed and marginally-employed Mongolians, and thus to contribute to poverty reduction in Mongolia. Securing private-sector participation, creating skills standards, and competency-based training system, introducing a new career guidance system and establishing national labor market information system are the main objectives of the VET Project.

Scope and period of implementation

As a result of the project, approximately 1,500 TVET instructors and administrators will be involved in professional training and upgrade their skills, learning environment of 15 selected Vocational Training and Practice Centers (VTPC) and 3 Centers of Excellence in priority sectors such as Health, Construction and Mining will be improved. During its five year implementation, the project benefits will reach out over 60 VTPCs, their teachers, students, as well as policy makers and employers in general.
