It has ended the inconvenient and time-consuming methods for Approvals Related to Apprenticeship Program Registration. The Act has also authorized provincial TVET Assessment organizations like the PBTE to conduct examinations similar to the CBT&A- an internationally recognized teaching and assessment system.
The apprenticeship is not just to train young people for businesses or professions; it is also intended to provide on-the-job training at companies and technical education in various institutes.
The Apprenticeship Act 2021 will follow the functioning of the European dual-track training system to remove the gap between industry and TEVTA. The initiative will provide the youngsters with almost 100,000 employment opportunities yearly.
