Technology-Enabled Quality Assurance



Technology-Enabled Quality Assurance

In response to the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and the Federal Government's strategic emphasis on a digitally-driven economy, our Board has spearheaded the development of a digital platform for seamless communication with all institutions within our regulatory ambit.

In alignment with this technological thrust, the Board is proud to unveil a paradigm-shifting approach—Technology-Driven Quality Assurance for TVET Institutions. This pioneering initiative seeks to significantly curtail the need for on-site visits, thereby relieving financial pressures on institutions nationwide. Notably, it fosters sustainability by obviating the requirement for the traditional submission of Self-Study Questionnaires (SSQ), hitherto presented in hardbound copies.

A key facet of this initiative is the deliberate reduction in personnel deployment, achieved through the comprehensive digitization of the entire quality assurance process. Formerly manual procedures, conducted during physical visits, are now seamlessly executed through state-of-the-art technology, enhancing overall efficiency and efficacy.

Beyond streamlining administrative processes, this initiative serves as a pivotal tool for the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) to closely monitor the implementation of curricula, particularly concerning the practical components. Given that 60% - 70% of technology program curricula in TVET institutions are practical in nature, neglect of these elements has often resulted in graduates with suboptimal practical knowledge. This technology-enabled approach aims to rectify this imbalance, ensuring a more robust and practical-oriented education.
