The programme targets current management cadre who do not possess formal management qualifications and those who
aspire to become managers within the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector. The knowledge
embedded in this programme enables students to develop competencies and skills in this domain in a more conducive and focused
manner. The programme recognises the major attributes that TVET Management must possess to be able to lead and
manage staff, to perform their functional tasks in a goal‐directed manner while demonstrating initiative and responsibility in
management within a TVET environment. Upon completion of the programme, the students should be able to actively
participate in leadership and management activities in a formal training environment such as Vocational Training Centres
(VTCs), Community Skills Development Centres (COSDECs) and any other TVET organisation, and especially those using
Competency‐Based Education and Training (CBET) methods of instruction.
Potential candidates must meet the General Admission Requirements of NUST (as outlined in the Prospectus) and be qualified in
a designated trade, and a minimum of one year of managerial experience in a VTC/COSDEC/TVET institution before registration
