The National Directorate for Professional Technical Education (DINET) is one of the Ministry departments that is responsible for Professional Technical Education (PTE) across Mozambique. DINET has been a UNEVOC’s Network member since 1999, and works in the field of Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) particularly in policy making and curriculum design. As a Network member, DINET has been actively involved in the promotion, transformation and scaling up of TVET as recommended by the third TVET congress in Shanghai.
Mr Manuel Caetano, focal point of the UNEVOC Centre in Mozambique, spoke to UNESCO-UNEVOC about the work of the Directorate.
What has been the biggest benefit of being a UNEVOC Centre?
“The international sharing of good practices, innovation and expertise among UN Member States has been the biggest benefit of being a UNEVOC Centre. The virtual conferences organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC bring valuable interactions among TVET experts and helps understanding what is really happening in the world of TVET. The UNEVOC Network has made it possible for us to share experiences with others, and discuss issues of common relevance. And of course, the range of publications and other resources have helped a great deal too.”
What has the UNEVOC Centre been up to this year?
“We participated in the conference held in Gaborone, Botswana, organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC in cooperation with the Botswana Qualifications Authority. The conference discussed youth transitions and network consolidation, which provided a platform for regional and international expertise on school-to-work transitions and regional challenges in both the formal and informal sector.”
