“TVET is a key to prepare the highly demanded competent and diligent workforce, which is in high relevance for further economic and social development in Mongolia. In the public, very often, information is limited about TVET opportunities. Stereotypes might exist in the society that values university studies higher than vocational training. But if you look closer, TVET career pathways are promising. Companies are looking for skilled workers who gained practical experiences while training. Thus, with a fundamental high-quality vocational training young people are getting well prepared for their future working life, to gain income and to contribute to the economic development of Mongolia.” 

This online training is one of a series of activities (training, data hackathon and article competition) designated for Journalists and media personals to promote TVET image in Mongolia to attract more young Mongolians to TVET.
