COVID-19 could be the mega maleficent of the 21st Century with almost all countries shutting TVET institutions to break the chain of transmission. However, the training and education of our youth has to continue because staying idle is contrary to the constitutional foundation of civil societies.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease was recorded rising in the world since December 2019. As a result some institutions started offering online education to their students, the majority of the students have not yet benefited from distance learning. Since youth are our human capital, we must use alternative way to offer education to them in order to continue their learning. The new normal brings on different responsibilities for teachers, students and parents. As for teachers, their duties do not significantly differ from before since they were also required to help maintain discipline in institutions and monitor students then. This new normal has, however, allowed us to implement several measures. For instance, we wanted to reduce the number of students per class from the previous 35 to 40 students. This has never materialized before due to limitations in space and teacher availability.

The objective of this webinar is to share the standard operating procedures (SOPs) for opening of TVET institutions. There is an urgent need for all educators to get ready to re-open institutions for which TVET institutions need contextually-relevant SOPs for their effective operations in order to make TVET institutions safe learning places for students, teachers and parents.
