Sector Skills Councils to be Launched Tomorrow

As you are aware, Tanzania Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology is implementing one of the component under Education and Skills for Productive Jobs (ESPJ) program i.e establishing, coordinating and administering the Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) for the six selected economic sectors namely Agribusiness and Agro-Processing, Transport and Logistics, Tourism and Hospitality, Energy, Construction, and ICT.

SSCs will act as an aggregator of industry interests, bringing together firms and business associations and training providers, relevant ministries and regulatory agencies (with the private sector representation in the majority). SSCs will be responsible in mapping/identifying and prioritizing skills needs in the concerned economic sector, identifying all stakeholders in each sector as well as become effective platforms for promoting public-private collaboration with regard to nourishing knowledge and skills development for the respective sectors.

On this occasion, the ‘Sector Skills Councils’ (SSCs) for six selected sectors as indicated in the National Skills Development Strategy (NSDS) are expected to be launched by the guest of honor, Hon.
