About MoES:
The Government of Uganda represented by the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) and supported by World Bank  and the Government of Belgium initialed a process to formulate a ten year BTVET Strategic Plan (Skilling Uganda) in 2009. This denotes a paradigm shift for skills development in Uganda with the overall aim of transforming the BTVET system from an Educational Sub-Sector into a comprehensive System of Skills development for employment, enhanced productivity, and growth. The main purpose will be to create employable skills and competencies relevant to the labour market instead of educational Certificates. It will embrace all Ugandans in need of skills, not only primary and Secondary School leavers. Skills will enable the Country to expand and grow.
