NAVTTC to bring improvement in standards of certification: ED

The National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) is thriving continuously to bring improvement in the standards of certification so that identification and acceptance of its certificate may be amplified on national and international levels.
It was stated by the Executive Director, NAVTTC Dr. Nasir Khan while addressing a meeting of all provincial Qualification Awarding Bodies (QABs) held here Thursday, a press release said. The meeting was attended by the participants of the Board of Technical Education (Punjab, Sindh, KPK), Trade Testing Board (Sindh, Punjab, KPK, AKJ) and Punjab Vocational Training Council. In order to achieve this, it was decided in the meeting that all the testing Boards will have to work collectively so that a unified certification system may be kept in place, through which not only the original and fake certificates could be identified but the trust of youth on the system may be strengthened as well.
In the meeting, the vital responsibility of the concerned Boards was also discussed that they must identify and halt the fake certificates issuing and unregistered institutes so that the standard of the training may not be compromised at any cost. Dr. Nasir Khan further added that the ones obtaining certificate thorough this unfair channel, not only create problems for genuine certified work force internationally but are also responsible for presenting the country’s bad image to the world.
It was decided unanimously in the meeting that a unified certificate regime will be ensured in the country through which courses prepared under National Vocational Qualification Framework (NVQF) shall be enforced in all the vocational training institutes countrywide. Furthermore to develop awareness of this system, awareness seminars will be organized country wide and the participation of the concerned stakeholders from all provinces will be ensured.
Primary agenda of the meeting included “standardized suitable fee for the assessors, issuance of certificates under the National Qualification Frame work (NVQF), improvement in monitoring system, escalation of assessment standards of NVQF, increase in the technical efficiency and capacity of QABs, maintain data on NVQF Registry, making the NVQF National Support Unit active and accreditation of institutes in all provinces”.—APP
