The project of Modernization of the Technical Vocational Training (TVT) of the Cyprus Productivity Centre, within the framework of the Cooperation Programme between Switzerland and the Republic of Cyprus, is part of the Programme for the Modernization of the Technical Vocational Training of the Cyprus Productivity Centre.
The project aims to contribute to the upgrading of the Technical Vocational Training (TVT) system in Cyprus through the modernization of the technological base for vocational training at the Cyprus Productivity Centre, the main provider of TVT in Cyprus, through the utilization of state-of-the-art technology, means and training equipment, and the upgrading of the methodological and knowledge base of the TVT of the CPC and the development of its training capacity in areas that meet the needs of the labour market, including emerging priority areas in which training is not currently offered, such as energy saving, and the use of alternative energy sources.
The project has a budget of 1.882.000CHF and the expected initial project duration was 3 years (36 months). The Revised project duration is 55 months. The project estimated completion date is 30/4/2015.
To ensure the successful implementation of the project, the CPC cooperates with the Cyprus Employers and Industrialists Federation (OEB) and the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET). The two organizations participate with representatives in the Project Steering Committee.
The Tender Procedure for the Technical Assistance necessary for the preparation of tender specifications and tender documents for the other tenders of the project, as well as for the design, development and implementation of new training laboratories on energy issues is already underway.
