Nakawa Vocational training Institute

Nakawa Vocational training Institute

Nakawa Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) is one of the four Public Vocational Training Institutes directly operated and administered by the Ministry of Education & Sports (MoES) through the BTVET Department.

 The Institute was established in 1971 by the GOU in cooperation with the Government of Japan through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The primary objective of the establishment was to provide vocational training skills to school leavers and apprentices in enterprises and to upgrade and assess competencies of industrial workers. 

 Between 1997-2002, the Institute benefited from a 2nd phase project supported by the Governments of Uganda and Japan, which was implemented by JICA.  The project undertook:  (i) rehabilitation and expansion of the Institute facilities; (ii) provision of additional equipment and tools and; (iii) training of personnel (Instructors and Managers) staff. 

 From 2004 to 2006, a programme for consolidation of the project achievements and improving the Institute responsiveness to industrial training needs in terms of new technology in three selected fields was introduced.  The programme was intended to transfer modern technologies to practicing instructors in three fields.

 ·         Electricity; Factory Automation / Programmable Logical Control

·         Electronic; Digital Technology

·         Automotive; Electric Fuel Injection

 

The programme, which was known as Third Country and In-country Training spread out to the entire sub-region as instructors from Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Eritrea and Host Country Uganda participated.

In June 2007, a complementary project for Instructor Training for Vocational Education Training (ITVET) was instituted.  The project’s aim was to upgrade the competencies of in-service vocational training instructors in pedagogy and technical skills in Electronics, Electricity, Motor vehicle and Metal Fabrication.  NVTI staff aligned to the project have been trained in Japan as Master Trainers and are now implementing Diploma and Certificate in Vocational Training Instruction training programmes.  The first batch of 34 in-service instructors completed their 9-month course in March 2009.  The 2nd batch has just completed.

NAKAWA VTI VISION:

To be the center of excellence in developing human resources needed by the dynamic economy.

MISSION:

To provide competence based training for national and international development.

OBJECTIVES:

  • To develop professional, technical and human resource skills and create opportunities for high quality.
  • To develop core skills e.g. communication skills, team work and problem solving.
  • To provide career guidance and counselling as young women and men move into the labour market.
  • To offer workers opportunities for continous learning to upgrade their competencies and learn new skills.

 INSTITUTE STRUCTURE

 The principal is the head of the institution and is assisted by two Deputy Principals that is to say the Deputy Principal Administration and the Deputy Principal Training.  There are eight departments directly involved in the execution of the training programmes. These are Electricity, Electronics, Machining and fitting, Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Carpentry and joinery, Plumbing and Sheet metal, Welding and Fabrication and Building and Concrete Practice. The newly created Pedagogy department addresses the BTVET Instructors’ training delivery skills and managers.  All the 8 departments are managed by a Head of Department (HOD), 2 senior instructors, 3 Instructors and 2 Assistant Instructors.  All Instructors have benefited from skills transfer from JICA Experts who were attached to each department.  The institute receives short-term JICA experts from time to time when it is necessary, for specialized training in different areas.
