A new method of teaching will soon be introduced in technical and vocational schools in Papua New Guinea.
Instructors will be using computers and PowerPoint presentations as teaching tools.
More than eighty teachers are being trained at St. Joseph Technical College in Lae, Morobe Province.
This method used by the teachers comes with a resource pack for the students who will later graduate with four national certificates.
Two of these certificates will be attained at technical and vocational schools.
Lina Tarubi, the Provincial TVET Coordinator, says National Polytechnic Institute of PNG has partnered to provide this service.
These TVET teachers are now undergoing an in-service training, to be trained on measures when using the Competency Based Training and Assessment format.
With this format, teachers will be using new technologies, rather than blackboards.
John Moses, the Provincial TVET Inspector, says the students have to move with the shift in technology.
Morobe has eight technical and vocational schools with more than 100 teachers and 3,000 students.
Some of the recently introduced courses include Information Technology, Business Studies and Tourism and Hospitality.
The Province is planning to use the Competency Based Training and Assessment next year.
