Digitalization is a vast area and multiple actors are active in it. Coordination is therefore key to make most of the available resources. The project will assist the Directorate General of TVET to oversee and coordinate the relevant ongoing and planned activities regarding digitalization in TVET.
Having good learning materials is an important part of any skill development system. At the same time, developing quality learning materials is a challenging task requiring adequate pedagogical and technical expertise and financial resources. Taking a learning-by-doing approach, the project will develop digital learning materials while further strengthening local expertise and involving the central authorities in each step of the process.
In order to find a systemic solution for this demanding task, the project will support the Directorate General of TVET to explore options for institutionalizing the provision of expertise in e-pedagogy and learning material development. Learning from the hands-on work on educational materials will enable well-informed decisions.
The project is being implemented by Swisscontact, a profiled and well-known organization focusing on TVET and active in Cambodia for many years. For the two-year project LED has foreseen a total funding of 550,232 USD. The cooperation between the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training and LED has been formalized in a Memorandum of Understanding, which has been signed on 30 March 2023.
