Challenge set for students


DON Bosco Technical School (DBTS) in Port Moresby is preparing process to offer a globally-recognised national certificate course, the assistant secretary for Technical Vocational Education Training (Tvet), Rose Apelis says.
Speaking at the 19th graduation ceremony of DBTS yesterday, Apelis said that the introduction of the internationally-recognised course was the result of a curriculum audit recently conducted at DBTS, as well as other selected schools nationwide.
Apelis said that the curriculum audit was only in the first stages and preparations were being made to have the final training for teachers to equip them well to deliver the curriculum.
She said that Tvet provided an avenue for school drop-outs to further their education in technical skills, however, it was often seen as a dead end for many.
She urged the DBST Grade 12 and Industrial Training Course 2 graduates to promote Tvet by performing their best with the skills that they had learnt.
“I challenge you all to go out and change the mindset of people that the Tvet sector can produce some very skilled youths who can contribute effectively to the workforce,” Apelis said.
“There are lots of chances happening within our industry and you are needed in all the sectors of industry and in your community.”
