National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) Regional Director Muhammad Zulfikar Jatoi has said that efforts are under way to equip every youth of the province with necessary skills required to obtain a respectable job.

He stated this during a visit to the Balochistan Boys Scout Centre under the Prime Minister Youth Skill Development Programme on Friday. He was flanked by Information Secretary Muhammad Tayyab Lehri, Abdul Karim Khiyazai, Nizamuddin Mengal, Irfan Muhammad Khan, Haji Abdul Qayyum and Abdul Wahid Kakar.

The regional director said, “Apart from these courses in the future we will try to equip the youth with skills necessary to be successful in life. They will not only get respectable jobs through these courses, but will also be responsible for shaping the future of the country as well as its people.”

He said that the vocational training centre would produce youth with mega skills to tap the opportunities arising from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project. “Not only will they get better jobs, they will have the opportunity to work for the betterment of the country,” he added.

Taking over the podium, Information Secretary Lehri appreciated the role of the organisation and said that he was proud of the organisation.

He vowed to support the organisation whenever needed.

Earlier, the regional director was given a tour of the centre.

Jatoi was briefed about the different types of training courses being imparted to the youth. He was told that the youth were being trained in order to equip them with skills and get them ready for the tough life ahead.

“They are being provided training in tailoring, beautician, English language, welding and computer courses as well as being provided monthly stipend,” teachers at the centre told the regional director.

Besides providing the youth with latest equipment regarding trade, the organisation pays the youth under training Rs3,000 per month for six months, they said.

“The training being imparted to the youth at NAVTTC is of international standard with no compromise on its quality,” they added.
