TEVET codes of conduct and trainee orientation programme impact report
As part of STEP’s objective of supporting an equitable and gender balanced TEVET system and to improve the quality and relevance of the training, new Codes of Conduct (CoCs) were developed for TEVET Instructors and Administration Staff, and for TEVET Trainees. In addition, a comprehensive trainee orientation programme was designed as a way to create a positive learning environment, where all trainees feel well supported by their college and motivated to complete their course. Instructions on how to run the orientation programme were outlined in an Orientation Programme guide booklet (OP) and principals and instructors from the TEVET institutions were trained in the new Codes of Conduct and in delivering the orientation programme. An orientation pack was developed for new TEVET trainees, which included a Trainee Orientation Manual (OM), along with a set of pamphlets communicating the information from the CoC, OP and OM in accessible formats. Finally, a set of posters was developed with the same information.
