The Skills Training for Employment Program in Mozambique (STEM) is focused on enhancing the quality and delivery of demand-driven, competency-based, gender and environmentally-sensitive training programs related to mining, oil and gas sectors. In partnership with Mozambique’s Ministry of Science and Technology, Higher and Technical and Professional Education, the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Services and particularly with the National Authority of Professional Education, Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) provides technical assistance in teacher training, management training, procurement of industrial training equipment and development of new and renewed training programs. These training programs are based on labour market needs and competencies required identified by employers. CICan is also establishing student support services, an innovative approach in Mozambique to support the well-being of female and male students during their studies at participating institutions located in Moatize, Pemba and Macomia. STEM is committed to increasing the proportion of female learners within newly-developed training programs and changing attitudes towards girls’ and women’s participation in professional and technological streams.
