The Education network, Timor-Leste Coalition for Education (TLCE) urges the new government of Timor-Leste to continue paying attention to government vocational training schools across the country.

Education network, TLCE urges the new government of Timor-Leste to continue paying attention to government vocational training schools across the country.

During the VI Government, he said the Ministry of Education managed to turn several general high schools into vocational training schools aimed at preparing the Timorese youth to be job ready.
The policy of decreasing general high schools was welcomed by the community but according to the Program Education manager of TLCE, Matias dos Santos, they should adequately equip the vocational schools, in terms of
the labor, facilities, and equipment for students to practice a trade.
“We do not want our children have certificates but then not have skills to compete in the [job] market,” he added in Dili.
He said also several vocational training schools have similar teaching curriculums to the general high schools due to the lack of teachers, books, and laboratories so student can practice their knowledge of the sciences.
Comoro youth, Jose Amaral called on the upcoming new government to continue this policy, in particular to fix the condition of vocational training schools because this is a positive step to qualify young Timorese.
“We hope the new government will continue to develop this policy,” he hoped.
He said this policy could contribute to the reduction of unemployment in Timor-Leste as because many young people have certificates but no skills to compete in the labour market.
He added that to his knowledge the learning process in vocational training schools across the country needs improvement.
