National TVET Day celebration planned for June 15

Cambodia will celebrate the 5th national Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Day under the theme “TVET to increase work productivity and competitiveness”, and has set June 15 as the date for the annual TVET event, according to a government circular.

The April 7 circular said the government had set the date to promote TVET to students, parents, guardians and the private sector so they will understand the importance of TVET.

It said Prime Minister Hun Sen had announced that the celebration of the day would boost the development of a skilled labour force, to meet market needs at home and abroad.

In order for this National TVET Day to run smoothly, and with the participation of all stakeholders, Hun Sen instructed relevant ministries and institutions – including the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, which is in charge of the celebration – to properly maintain preventive health measures to stave off the coronavirus.

He added that the labour ministry should prepare to produce videos and documents – in collaboration with relevant ministries, institutions, the capital and provincial administrations, national and international development partners and the private sector – and spread them throughout the country.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Administration would and support the ministry and advertise the day by means of banners in public places.

At the sub-national level, each provincial administration would also mark the occasion.

Hun Sen said each administration should build a movement that encourage the participation of the private sector, including companies, factories, enterprises and institutions.

“The Ministry of Information will employ many kinds of media – including radio, television, newspapers and social media – to disseminate the circular, messages, videos and other documents on the occasion of the National Day,” he said.

Hun Sen also instructed ministries and the capital and provincial administrations to prepare banners and slogans in public places, such as TVET increases work productivity and competitiveness! TVET helps offer decent and high-income Jobs!

Also to be used as slogans are: TVET offers real skills and a better life! TVET is the pillar of social protection for the people! TVET provides real skills, decent jobs and careers! TVEE offers a young man a skill in life! Women and indigenous people should also learn technical and vocational skills! TVET is for all.

He called on compatriots to join in celebrating this important National TVET Day.
