The Tekera Vocational School is now open
TVS has opened its doors to adults and children alike! All must be Primary 7 graduates, and age is not a factor. The 4 subjects being offered are: tailoring, carpentry, agriculture and masonry. The cost is Canadian $250 per year (scholarships are available), and the Level 1 Certificate acquired is a two-year program. Graduates of TVS can get work directly thereafter. Should they then wish to acquire a Level 2 Certificate, they can earn funds for this in their chosen vocation. In Uganda, with a Level 2 trade certificate, students can then enter university programs in a variety of engineering, science and education departments, going all the way to PhD level!
