|Overview : |
The PROFET Project-Programme for Strengthening Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Cuba, financed by SDC and implemented by UNDP, promotes the access of Cuban managers, officials, methodologists, and professors to the Swiss experience in technical and vocational training (Dual Education).
The contractual service consists of conducting a coordination process, for around two years (from 2021 to 2023), for the technical training and exchange programme aimed at increasing the knowledge and skills of participants in VET system management, and the practical training and effective knowledge of the dual vocational training model.
The programme seeks to implement training actions (applying the training of trainers approach), helping to strengthen curricular, methodological, and teaching-practice capacities at technical and vocational training institutes, with an emphasis on topics related to construction, agriculture, and tourism services.
The programme uses two modalities: the virtual and the face-to face ones considering the current COVID-19 Pandemic and the travel restrictions during the year 2021.
