The TVET school managers training program remains an instrumental program in achieving the effective management of TVET production units as business entities.
In many regards, the objectives of the training program were achieved exemplified by the acquired business managerial skills and knowledge, increased confidence, entrepreneurial mindset and effective decision making. All school managers that underwent the training program concurred that it was a capacity upgrade relevant for bolstering their managerial potentials from the content and methodology perspectives.
TVET schools managers, Partrnership -Rhineland-Palatinate Rwanda and RICEM, owe the successful implementation of this training program to the complementary collaboration, timely exchange, valuable input and relentless commitment.
