SDPA Conference Proceedings 2015

Holding the culminating activity for CPSC’s project with the Government of India, dubbed as "Asia Pacific Capacity Building on TVET Skills for Poverty Alleviation Project for Technical Human Resource Development", through the International Conference on TVET Skills Development for Poverty Alleviation, Entrepreneurship and Employability (ISDPAEE) had been doubly significant for the College. The occasion, held from June 22-23, 2015, shared the fulfillment of having accomplished the project’s targets and objectives. Similarly, the event paved the way for substantial exchange of best practices, experiences, plans and views on actions to be taken or enhancements in existing programs and systems within the context of TVET skills development. All these in the one hope for a better life for people living below the poverty line in the Asia-Pacific region.

The project, formally launched in August 2010 through the International Symposium on TVET Skills for Poverty Alleviation in the Asia-Pacific Region, has trained almost 400 champion leaders who in turn pass on the knowledge to over 1,000 individuals, creating skills on micro-finance, social entrepreneurship and poverty alleviation.
