Haiti – Politic : Launch of a new web portal on vocational training
This week was the launch of the new Internet portal “PROFORMAH”, designed and developed by Haiti Tech, set up by the State Secretariat for Vocational Training in collaboration with the consortium Swiss contact / Caritas Switzerland.
During an official ceremony, Secretary of State Maguy Durcé presented this new thematic web portal dedicated to the promotion and popularization of training in its various variations, in particular Technical and Vocational Training, University Training, Initial Training, Training and the Recognition and Validation of Acquired Professional Experience (RVAEP) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-31278-haiti-politic-towards-the-implementation-of-the-law-on-the-validation-of-achievement-and-professional-experience.html
It is also a monitoring device that allows you to follow the latest news in the sector and keep abreast of developments and trends in the training industry in general. A source of information for schoolchildren, students, professionals looking for information on training, scholarships and jobs.
According to Durcé, this new portal accessible on https://sef.gouv.ht/portail/ gives access to the main training institutions, national and international organizations involved in the world of training . It can also be considered as a monitoring device that will allow everyone to follow news in the training sector and the evolution of training trends in relation to market needs. Service offers, service requests will be presented as well as training grants that will be open to competition.
Levelt Joseph, the coordinator of the RVAEP, stressed that this was one of the most interesting outcomes of the four-year agreement dealing with the Qualification and Access to Work System (SQUAT) binding since 2018 the Haitian State, via the Ministry of Education and the Swiss Confederation through the Swiss Contact / Caritas Suisse Consortium.
Israna Germain program manager at the Swiss Embassy in Haiti expressed her joy at the launch of this portal. “The Swiss Embassy’s support for the training sector once again illustrates our commitment to support public and private actors working for social and economic inclusion in Haiti”
As for Monica Del Sarto, responsible for the SQUAT project, she says she hopes this initiative will allow young Haitians to find training opportunities that will facilitate their successful entry into the labor market.
Although officially launched, PROFORMAH remains in development, some information will be added as the relevant institutions will manifest.
