Occupational Standards

The world of work is influenced through a rapid technological innovation and changes in the organization of the work system. The development and application of new technology in the field of ICT generates new tasks in every occupational system in the world. Therefore, there is a need for developing a new TVET teacher study program with respect to the national and international situation. The new study program is oriented on the state of the art technology in field of ICT, the needs in the labor market and the challenges in the TVET system in Ethiopia.

Skilled workers in the field of ICT must be able to find solutions to new complex and challenging technical problems. They must have strong theoretical knowledge and technical skills to be able to integrate technical concepts with practical applications. Thus TVET teachers need profound theoretical knowledge, practical skills and right attitude in the occupational field.
