The Improving Skills Training For Employment Program (ISTEP) is focused on strengthening skills development in Tanzania. Working in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MOEST), lead regulatory bodies and Tanzanian employer associations, Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is establishing connections between Canadian institutions with Tanzanian technical and vocational institutions to develop demand-driven and competency-based programs.
