In 2019, the Government of Uganda approved a TVET Policy (2019) as one of the key documents to guide the reform in TVET sector in Uganda. The Policy lays a foundation for a TVET System that is flexible to the changing labor market demands.
The Policy also provides for a: structure to coordinate, regulate and harmonize TVET at all levels; framework for resource mobilization, utilization and sustainability for quality TVET provision and delivery; and, career path and linkages between general education and TVET.
In addition, the policy provides the basis for reviewing and harmonizing the current laws. In order to prepare for the implementation of the approved TVET Policy actions and interventions, Cabinet approved transitional arrangements that include establishment of a Multi-Ministerial Committee to give policy directions, an Implementation Working Group to oversee and guide the process and make decisions on the reforms and a Secretariat to coordinate and provide support to the activities of all Ministries and Stakeholders in TVET until the Permanent structures are in place.
