Bhutan Times - - Home - Sonam Pen­jor

To re­duce the un­em­ploy­ment rates in the coun­try, a in-coun­try train­ing pro­gram on Entrepreneurship and Man­age­ment in tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing (TVET) was or­ga­nized for the last five days in the cap­i­tal which con­cluded last Fri­day.

Entrepreneurship is the process of start­ing a busi­ness, typ­i­cally a start-up com­pany of­fer­ing an in­no­va­tive prod­uct, process or the ser­vices, ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease from the Min­istry of La­bor.

“The five days of entrepreneurship and man­age­ment in TVET was full of knowl­edge gain­ing, knowl­edge ex­chang­ing and knowl­edge shar­ing pro­gram be­tween the par­tic­i­pants and re­source per­son”, said Dhiren Rai, one of the par­tic­i­pants. “This type of TVET pro­gram needs mush­room­ing in ev­ery corners of Bhutan to make the public el­i­gi­ble and ef­fi­cient in their work”.

“I joined this pro­gram, Entrepreneurship and Man­age­ment in TVET mainly to get my­self ed­u­cated and skilled in the field of entrepreneurship”, said another par­tic­i­pants Jigme Yolzer, who is work­ing with IBEST in­sti­tute. “I learned lots of things that I didn’t know be­fore now I will dis­sem­i­nate the skill that I have ac­quired while am back at in­sti­tute”.

He added that, through this train­ing he was mo­ti­vated and strongly look­ing for­ward to be an en­tre­pre­neur, as a same time he looks for­ward to ac­quire the skills.

“Through this pro­gram I think we can bring up more en­trepreneurs to bring down the un­em­ploy­ment rate in the coun­try”, said Jigme.

This in-coun­try train­ing pro­gram in Bhutan aims to fur­ther aware­ness of the par­tic­i­pants on the rel­e­vance of entrepreneurship ed­u­ca­tion in present times and the need to di­vert a sig­nif­i­cant chunk of TVET grad­u­ates from wage em­ploy­ment to en­tre­pre­neur­ial ca­reers in a de­vel­op­ing coun­try like Bhutan; stated the press re­lease.

The pro­gram had trained the par­tic­i­pants on adopt­ing new strate­gies for entrepreneurship pro­mo­tion in TVET; on in­still­ing high achieve­ment mo­tive amongst the grad­u­ates; in hav­ing knowl­edge of the fa­cil­i­ties; in­cen­tives and loans of­fered to en­trepreneurs in the coun­try; man­age­ment of hu­man re­sources and un­der­stand­ing the com­plete process of entrepreneurship.

The main ob­jec­tives of pro­gram was to ap­ply blue ocean strat­egy for entrepreneurship pro­mo­tion in TVET; to ap­pre­ci­ate sig­nif­i­cance of lead­er­ship and man­age­rial skills in en­trepreneurs; to de­velop ex­per­tise on in­still­ing high achieve­ment mo­tive amongst the TVET stu­dents; to have knowl­edge of ex­pec­ta­tions of en­trepreneurs from TVET sys­tem and to pre­pare an ac­tion plan for strength­en­ing entrepreneurship ed­u­ca­tion in TVET In­sti­tu­tions of Bhutan.

The par­tic­i­pants were taught about the rel­e­vance of the entrepreneurship in the present times; about the lead­er­ship and man­age­rial skills for en­trepreneurs; about an ap­pli­ca­tion of blue ocean strat­egy for entrepreneurship pro­mo­tion in TVET and to fa­cil­i­ties, in­cen­tives and loans of­fered to en­trepreneurs in Bhutan and man­ag­ing hu­man re­sources in en­ter­prises.

Mean­while, the par­tic­i­pants were from the TVET train­ing provider both from pri­vate and public in­sti­tutes. Seven of them are from pri­vate in­sti­tutes, 13 are from the public in­sti­tutes and ten of them are from the min­istry of la­bor. In to­tal 30 par­tic­i­pants have par­tic­i­pated for the train­ing which was or­ga­nized by the Colombo Plan Staff Col­lege (CPSC) for Tech­ni­cian Ed­u­ca­tion in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Depart­ment of Hu­man Re­sources un­der the Min­istry of La­bor and Hu­man Re­sources.
