Volvo Group designed and implemented Vocational Training programs tailored to the specific industry needs of Ethiopia, Zambia, and Morocco.
Volvo, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and UNIDO have partnered to establish the first vocational training school for the training of trainers and commercial vehicle drivers (CVDs) in Ethiopia to meet the growing demand from private transport companies. The vocational training school will train 40 trainees and 20 trainers each year, in addition to 480 employees from other transport companies who will benefit from short-term skill upgrading training on an annual basis.
The project strives to introduce mandatory road safety training, such as defensive driving and awareness campaigns in schools in order to reduce the fatality rates from 65 to 32 in five years’ time according to the target of the government. Furthermore, and in collaboration with the Ethiopian Federal Transport Authority, the project will establish standards for the teachers and students certification and assist other schools to adopt a new curriculum for CVD training based on the success of this new institute.
