RIPHAH and NAVTTC Sign MoU for Vocational Training Collaboration


In a significant move to enhance vocational training in Pakistan, Riphah International University (RIU) and the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) have signed a landmark agreement at the NAVTTC Headquarters in Islamabad. This collaboration, the largest of its kind in recent memory, aims to bridge the gap between industry and academia by equipping the Pakistani youth with essential, hands-on skills for both local and global markets.

The agreement was formalized by Mr Ahmed Nauman Anees, CEO/Project Director of Riphah ExcelTech Institute and Group Director of Human Development Services and Strategy, representing Riphah International University, and the Director General/Chairperson of Planning and Development on behalf of NAVTTC. The project, funded by the Prime Minister’s Office, is part of the prestigious SFIC forum at the national level, reflecting a strong governmental commitment to vocational training.

Chancellor Hassan Muhammad Khan of RIU has long envisioned bridging the gap between industry needs and academic training. This collaboration aligns with his vision, focusing particularly on Allied Health Sciences. The initiative aims to empower Pakistani youth by providing them with practical experience, transforming them into vocational training experts ready to meet the demands of the 21st century.

One of the project’s significant highlights is the establishment of a comprehensive, well-equipped micro-credentialing Academy. This Academy will be managed by top industry experts and academicians with international exposure, ensuring high-quality training and skill development.

Riphah International University has a strong track record of fostering knowledge and skills development among Pakistani youth. This new initiative continues that legacy, aiming to produce proficient professionals capable of contributing both locally and internationally. The export of trained manpower overseas is expected to bring precious foreign exchange to Pakistan, further bolstering the national economy.

The agreement signifies a pivotal step towards enhancing the vocational training landscape in Pakistan, providing young people with the tools they need to succeed in a competitive global market.
