I am the Senior Manager, Policy and Stakeholder Engagement, in Swisscontact’s Vocational Skills Development Programme (VSDP), based in Yangon. I joined Swisscontact in May 2014, as technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is new to Myanmar and there is a real need for the country to reform its current systems. This reform will take time, as public institutions are under-resourced and learning materials outdated, but Swisscontact’s field tested experiences are invaluable in supporting this process. Through regular engagement with public and private sector stakeholders, VSDP contributes to a more efficient and effective TVET system, which opens up new livelihood opportunities for people across the country. Through its activities, Swisscontact has done a great job empowering female beneficiaries, which is one of the reasons I have a strong attachment to the organisation, and the lively and collaborative work environment helps to motivate me every day.
