Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET)
Education addresses the need for skilled manpower in both existing
and emerging economic sectors to be able to compete globally. It targets an
increasingly diverse population and includes both new entrants and in-service
members, with wide ranging educational and social characteristics.
Ministry of Education, Tertiary Education, Science & Technology presently
operates 6 Technical Institutions under its aegis along with three campuses
operating under the responsibility of Mauritius Polytechnics Limited (PML).
The Technical Education sector is regulated by the Mauritius Qualifications Authority (MQA) which also develops and
maintains the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). The
MQA is responsible for ensuring the quality of all training (state or the
private sector), and also deals with recognition and equivalence of technical
qualifications. The MQA registers training institutions, managers, program
officers and trainers and approves courses as well as accrediting training
institutions. The quality assurance mechanism allows for accreditation of the
providers of training, which ensures that courses delivered at different levels
are evaluated for high quality education and training.
