TaiwanICDF and Workforce Development Agency’s Taichung-Changhua-Nantou Regional Branch Cooperate on 2014 Vocational Training Project for Youth in the Pacific

The TaiwanICDF is cooperating with the Taichung-Changhua-Nantou Regional Branch of the Ministry of Labor’s Workforce Development Agency on its 2014 Vocational Training Project for Youth in the Pacific, with 22 young people from five Pacific partner countries – Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau and the Solomon Islands – visiting Taiwan for training from October 2 through to December 26.

The project aims to assist young Pacific islanders in cultivating professional and technical abilities, enhancing trainees’ employment opportunities and career development. This year, the TaiwanICDF is cooperating with the Workforce Development Agency’s Taichung-Changhua-Nantou Regional Branch, utilizing the agency’s vocational training venues and trainers, and addressing the kinds of skills needed for everyday life in the TaiwanICDF’s Pacific partner countries. Four classes are being offered, covering electrical and plumbing services, automotive mechanics, computer software and network applications, and refrigeration and air conditioning.

Through its professional and technical themes, and intensive vocational training curriculum, this three-month program will not only be helping participants to increase their basic knowledge and skills in selected disciplines: Guidance on youth entrepreneurship will also be provided throughout the training period as part of basic business management courses and a common curriculum designed to enhance the young trainees’ competitiveness in terms of employability. In addition, after returning home the trainees are expected to become seed personnel in their countries’ efforts to promote the spread of vocational training and techniques, further expanding cooperative relations between Taiwan and its Pacific partners.
