In brief, the portal will provide “a means to present information from diverse sources in a consistent way with a uniform look and feel”. It will provide a space for common information (like that from the Government such as standards, curriculum, accreditation of training providers and assessment and certification) and information specific to training providers such as courses offered and about jobs like occupational profiles and placement opportunities.
The portal will establish one single entry point for Uganda’s BTVET system online and operate as a directory of individuals and organisations participating in the BTVET system. Furthermore, the portal will provide a means of disseminating cross cutting information such as that related to Occupational profiles, the UVQF and accreditation in a BTVET One-Stop-Shop. To maximize the benefits across all users, a system of shared content libraries, news, discussions and surveys will enable the single website to serve the interactive cross-cutting demands of the BTVET community. To minimize costs of setting up and maintaining the information on the portal each user will be responsible for their own part of the web space with an operating agency only supporting the registration, hosting and home page, thus contributing to growth and sustainability.
