Sector Skills Council is a way to formalize the organization of employers in a sector to actively engage in technical and vocational education and training. They work together with employers to create and develop training and skills development solutions that meet the particular needs of the sector, and improve the country’s competitiveness and productivity. The Government of Pakistan through National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) has recognized the Skills Council in Hospitality Sector as the representative voice for the sector in Technical Education and Vocational Education (TVET). NAVTTC is committed to involve the Council in policy decisions on training, development of training programmes as well as provide advisory role in the areas of labour market information and on-the-job training.
Our task is to ensure new skills and attitudes, the development of a training system that anticipates and responds to secure a world-class labour force in the Hospitality and Tourism sector.
I am motivated by the daunting challenge we face in proving decent jobs for our growing, youthful population. By 2020, unemployment amongst 15-24 year olds is expected to reach 8.6 million.
