Norway to support training programme
Maputo, 2 Oct (AIM) – The Norwegian government is to provide a million US dollar to support a training programme for young Mozambicans. This will focus on the essential skills needed for the construction and maintenance of infrastructure for the exploitation of natural gas in the Rovuma Basin.

This was revealed on Wednesday by Oyvind Johansen from the Norwegian Embassy.

He was speaking at a meeting in Maputo analysing the Mozambican Ministry of Education’s programme to expand entrepreneurship lessons in schools.

The entrepreneurship programme was launched in 2007 with technical assistance from the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and funding from Norway.

Johansen stated that the project had introduced the subject of entrepreneurship into over half of the targeted schools. He said that the Ministry of Education would continue to expand the subject until taught in all schools.

Turning to the training programme, Johansen explained that the pilot phase would last three years. To begin with, it will be introduced in three institutions in the northern province of Cabo Delgado - namely: the technical school in Macomia; the Industrial and Commercial Institute in Pemba; and the National Institute of Employment and Vocational Training (INEFP) which is also in Pemba.

Johansen stated, “we are ready to begin as soon as the Ministry of Education gives its approval”.

He explained that Norway views the recent discoveries of mineral resources, particularly hydrocarbons, as an opportunity to generate quality employment for young Mozambicans. The project will aim to contribute to increasing local content in the exploitation of these resources.
