The workshop was chaired by Mr. Nouphan Outsa, Director General of the Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (DTVET), Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) and conducted at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Vientiane Capital and was the first such event where participants met physically again after many months of strictly online meetings because of Covid restrictions. Covid protection measures were put in place. Unfortunately, not all participants from the provinces could come to Vientiane and therefore joined the workshop online together with the ESS trainers from Switzerland and Albania.
The objective of the workshop was to inform the project progress of the years 2020 and 2021, and the work plan for 2022. However, most importantly participants shared their experiences and challenges with their coaching work in their provinces and offered suggestions for adjustments to be made in future coaching cycles. The workshop was facilitated by the Manager and Coordinator of Component 2 with other project staff also providing contributions.
