Technical and vocational training
Liberia requires more candidates for critical technical positions, so in 2017 we opened the Vocational Training Centre (VTC) in Yekepa, with a $7m investment. Providing young people with globally recognised and certified apprenticeship training for roles such as diesel mechanics, electricians, mechanical fitters, boilermakers, welders and instrumentation technicians, it is one of a kind in the country.
The first group of 46 apprentices started their training in March 2018, and in March 2019 the second group of 54 students, including 6 women entered the training programme. Our aim is to have 50 apprentices graduating every year.
