Apprenticeship training

Apprenticeship training is a work-based training whereby a person learns by observation and imitation from experienced master crafts person, acquires the skills of the trade and is inducted into the culture and networks of the business. Currently, VETA is implementing two modes of apprenticeship training, namely Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Dual Apprenticeship programme.

i. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

VETA is championing upgrading informal apprenticeship programme through Recognition of Prior Learning Assessment (RPLA) followed by tailor-made skills upgrading programmes and finally Certification. In Recognition of Prior Learning process the skills and knowledge of a person are accessed regardless of how, when and where the learning occurred against prescribed standards for modular or full qualifications. Learning may have occurred through non-formal or formal training or through life or work experience but never recognized and/or certified. At vocational level, RPL is done to people working at operational or artisanal level.

ii. Dual Apprenticeship

The Dual Apprenticeship training is the system whereby apprentices (trainees) alternate between the training centre and the workplace (industry) through a Block release system. In this system, much emphasis is put at the workplace since the Apprentices can easily learn skills through repetition. The System is designed to help people, without previous training, to enter the job market as apprentices in a craft of their choice.

The Dual Apprenticeship programme reduces mismatch between training and labour market needs; assures availability of skilled labour; tackles youth unemployment; helps youth to gain professional soft skills; enhances productivity; and increases enrolment in VET Centres.

Integrated Training for Entrepreneurship Promotion (INTEP)

Integrated training for entrepreneurship promotion (INTEP) is an employment-oriented, integrated vocational education and training focusing on training people who are unemployed, underemployed, or those who are working in the informal sector (micro and small enterprises) in both urban and rural settings.
Courses offered through INTEP are normally short and are often tailor-made. Apart from integration and linkages of training with business promotion in order to create employment, INTEP is used as a gender oriented approach, focusing mainly on women and youths.

Benefits of INTEP

 goes beyond the traditional VET approach of mere technical training;
 considers socially related demands of the community;
 considers the social and economic activities of the target groups for moving towards demand driven VET;
 provides a relevant link between VET and the socio-economic context of Tanzania;
 provides a tool of implementation of different national policy strategies
