Message from the Chairperson

Pakistan’s greatest asset is its human resource on which progress and prosperity of the country largely depends. Technical & vocational training plays vital role in enhancing productivity of human resource. The quality of training should be sensitive with the emergent needs of job market.

We are facing a variety of challenges in skills development relevant to market needs. TVET reforms are being introduced to improve quality of skills training and to increase access.  NVQF has been introduced under TVET Reforms Support Program to provide vertical and horizontal mobility and different pathways to earn qualifications. We have improved, expanded and diversified technical and vocational training. The situation today is certainly far better than one prevailing in earlier period of our history.

We stand committed to provide valid, reliable, flexible and fair assessment services that meet the needs of clients. Our assessment process includes the full range of activities that measure candidate’s skills, knowledge and attitude against nationally defined competency standards. We expect enhanced employer’s participation in assessment process to make our system responsive to job market.
