The Pakistan China Vocational and Technical Institute (PCV&TI) has taken a significant step towards enhancing the skills and knowledge of its faculty members. In an announcement made recently, the institute revealed plans to send its lecturers and instructors to China for a comprehensive 6-month training program starting in March of this year.
According to a report by Gwadar Pro, the Shandong Institute of Commerce and Technology, one of the four stakeholders of PCV&TI, will host the visiting faculty during their training stint in China.
This initiative comes on the heels of the recent recruitment drive conducted by PCV&TI. Last month, the institute hired 16 teachers across various fields, including Maritime Business and Port Management, Software/ Information Technology, E-commerce, Tourism and Hotel Management, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, English, Mathematics, Statistics, and Chinese language.
The operational roadmap of the institute was also approved during its first executive body meeting held last month, marking a significant milestone in its development.
In addition to these advancements, the federal government has allocated a budget of Rs 240 million for the fiscal year 2023-24 to support the operations of PCV&TI. This funding reflects the government’s commitment to promoting technical education and skill development in the country.
PCV&TI aims to become a hub for vocational and technical education, catering to the needs of the local community while fostering collaboration with international partners like China. By providing quality education and training, the institute endeavors to generate employment opportunities and cultivate a pool of skilled professionals in various sectors.
As the institute continues to grow and expand its capabilities, it is poised to play a pivotal role in the socioeconomic development of the region, contributing to the broader objectives of national progress and prosperity.
