USDP is a project under the department of Business, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (BTVET) within the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) which is designed to support the 10- year BTVET Skilling Uganda Strategic Plan . The objectives of the Strategic Plan are to: (i) Raise the economic relevance of BTVET, (ii) Increase the quality of skills provision, (iii) Provide equitable access to skills development, (iv) Achieve greater organizational and management effectiveness in BTVET, and (v) Increase internal eficiency and resources available for BTVET.
The Strategic Plan aims at creating employable skills and competencies relevant to the labour market instead of simply providing educational certiicates which have little perceived value with employers. It emphasises the development of a labour market-oriented system, founded on a proper understanding of the dynamics and needs of the labour market; active private sector involvement (in terms of planning, execution, monitoring and evaluation of training); improved coordination and management; more lexible ways of promoting and delivering skills development to a broader constituency.
