In view of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and as guided by the Ministry of Health on social distancing and avoiding crowds to minimize and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have changed the way we provide services to our esteemed clients and engaging stakeholders. We have (temporarily) suspended walk-in services at our offices until we get further guidance by the Ministry of Health. Online systems will be utilized to access different services from us.

Technical Education and Vocational Education Training (TEVET) Fund related queries can be made through WhatsApp: +260954590783 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org. The TEVET Fund plays an important role in assisting the development of quality, sustainable, demand-driven, and equitable TEVET system. The Fund establishes a financing platform that purchases training services from TEVET providers, on a competitive basis, for skills development in both the formal and informal sectors of the economy.
Government considers skills financing as critical assets for individuals, businesses and societies development. The matching skills and jobs is also highly prioritized policy concern because mismatches result into underutilization of existing human capital and lead to job vacancies not being filled in due to lack of appropriately skilled persons to fill them. The country is repositioning itself against skills mismatches using enhanced training and industry collaboration through TEVET financing for the MSMEs/informal sector and employer-based training in the formal sector to ensure employees are continuously up-skilled to retain their jobs and remain relevance to industry.

The online systems are meant to be a more reliable and accountable means of communication between the public and TEVETA.

Broadly, TEVETA is seeking ways of easing the cost of doing business using tailor-made management information systems. The management information systems are both computer and mobile phone compatible for usability by clients on different gadgets.
Priority areas of the management information systems are capture learner enrollments, learner demographics, learner progression rate, and learner graduation quantities and failure rate in the technical and vocational education training system. The systems also focus on tracer studies/learner employability analysis, assess relevance of the training, and staff demographics and ratio in relation to learners and trainers. Such insightful data is valuable in improving quality of TEVET, decision and policy making and sector financing to narrow skills gaps and mismatches. The management information systems are a robust information system that provides necessary information and feedback from stakeholders to ensure relevance of curriculum and industry responsive training.
