Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET)
This programme sets out to impart youths in the age bracket of 20 – 30 years with employable skills for self-reliance.
TVET aims to create sustainable learning opportunities that nurture youth empowerment and socioeconomic inclusion.
Strømme Foundation employs an apprenticeship model that is a crossbreed model integrating both the formal and informal models. It involves attachment of apprentices identified from vulnerable households, with local artisans. The apprentice works with the local artisans and learns the respective trade on the job.
Most unemployed youth are able to take up marketable trades that lead to job creation and unemployment opportunities that contribute to their household incomes and the economies of their communities.
The local artisans, who are more experienced and knowledgeable, help to mentor the less experienced trainees in the selected trade, guided by a structured curriculum. This mode of apprenticeship is more cost effective and practical than sending youths to formal vocational institutes.
