This training program has been inspired by the global push for the adoption of Competency Based Curriculums. This program has therefore been developed in line with the principles of a Competency Based Curriculum.

A competency-based curriculum is a curriculum that emphasizes what learners are expected to do rather than mainly focusing on what they are expected to know. In principle, such a curriculum is learner-centred and adaptive to the changing needs of students, teachers, and society. It implies that learners can acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes to solve situations they encounter in everyday life.

Furthermore, the job market in the 21st century is evolving to create more opportunities in self-employment, online jobs, freelance jobs, jobs in small and micro enterprises rather than the traditional models of employment in careers like teaching, medicine, engineering, etc.

This training program will impart skills that will enable individuals to take advantage of these new opportunities.
