The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Skills research project is an outcome of a collaborative partnership between the British Council, Alliance of Skills Training providers and Nationals Skills Development Corporation (NSDC). The research was undertaken by DEFT Advisory and Research, India with inputs and contributions from Elmvine Ltd, UK.
The study examined trainer effectiveness within private sector training providers delivering training funded by NSDC. It aimed to understand available support and practices to build trainers’ skills, particularly through professional development initiatives. The research report makes recommendations and highlights relevant examples from the UK and other international skills systems that could address gaps in relation to the findings.
The objectives of the study were to:
- understand the training and related opportunities available to the trainers to improve quality of their training
- understand the content of trainer training and the balance between strengthening the trainers’ subject knowledge and their knowledge of the available curriculum and assessment they are teaching to
- map the available trainer training related to improving their overall pedagogical skills
- map the gaps in the existing training offer and continuing professional development and the impact and challenges that these pose to trainer effectiveness
