Lakeland and NorQuest Colleges have partnered in a pre-technology training program in Tanzania.
Four representatives—2 from each institution—will be sent to the Vocational Education and Training Centre in Tanzania this month to start a 3-year project which is part of Colleges and Institutes Canada’s (CICan) Improving Skills Training for Employment Program (ISTEP) in the African country. ISTEP is funded by the Government of Canada. The aim of the project is to create opportunities for the disadvantaged learners of the African nation.
Orientation begins at the school March 16th through 18th. Then, according to Lakeland’s Joseph Unufegan, project coordinator, from March 19th to the 25th, the Canadian colleges, working in close collaboration with the Tanzanian partners, will commence an inception mission which will focus primarily on creating a project implementation work plan and budget development for the three‐year project.
