From 12 to 14 June 2019 in Kampala, representatives from the private sector, Ministries, trade unions, civil society organisations and VET trainers working in the sector of tourism and hospitality, participated in a 3-day VET Toolbox training to make the Tourism and Hospitality Sector Skills Council (T&H SSC) more operational and support the continuous establishment of a secretariat to handle the day-to-day business of the T&H SSC. This workshop was hosted by Enabel with support of British Council, both implementing partners of the VET Toolbox.
The goal was to gain the requisite knowledge, skills and experience, and expertise to enhance the T&H SSC systems, approaches and processes and deliver on the Council’s mandate and objectives. The T&H SSC in Uganda is the main public-private entity to enhance skills development in this sector. It supports the shifting from supply- to more relevant, demand-led, market-oriented training in line with Uganda’s skills reform agenda.
The intervention generated outcomes in three result areas:
- Clear governance structures are in place, entailing vision, mission, and objectives;
- Operational action plan is established, consisting of steps and activities to be taken in short, medium and long-term, including well defined roles and responsibilities;
- Endorsed partnerships with industry and public providers.
