17 Putting skills at the heart of economic success Word from THE minister Dr. Vincent Biruta Minister of Education The establishment of Workforce Development Authority (WDA) in the last four years by the Government of Rwanda has been a strategic response to the skills development challenges facing the country across all sectors of the economy. Since its inception in 2009, WDA has vividly worked towards realizing its mandate of being the leading driving force of development in Rwanda through the provision of Technical Vocational and Education Training (TVET). Through WDA, the local personnel is provided with hands-on skills for competitiveness and employability at local, regional and international labour market. TVET public awareness campaigns have been strongly emphasized to change the mindset of the Rwanda citizenry where many had a prior belief that joining vocational training was a sure spell to poverty. The Ministry of Education targets increasing enrolment into TVET from 38% to 60% by WDA has developed various activities whose main intention is raising awareness of its key activities. A case in point is through participating the TVET Expo, which is an annual event. Others include the robot contests, partnering with the private sector and local authorities, taking part in the annual beauty peagent known as The Miss Rwanda contest and supporting the work of local artists in order to highlight our programmes. Counting on over 303 TVET schools country wide, the development of local skills goes hand in hand with the enhancement of locally made products, using the latest technology through technical education. Through working together with different development partners, WDA has directed its focus on policies and strategies that are in line with government targets The Vision 2020, The EDPRS 2, ESSP, the Millennium Development Goals, among others. Key sector priorities that have been identified for intensive skills development are; construction and building services, Information and Communications Technology(ICT), Agriculture and Food Processing, technical manufacturing and assembling, clean and sustainable energy, art and crafts, beauty and aesthetics, mining and mineral processing, hospitality and tourism, film making, manufacturing and water resources management. Together, let us build a strong workforce for Rwanda s vibrant economy. This Year Book presents very significant information about WDA and other TVET stakeholders. Enjoy your reading!

47 Integrated Polytechnic REGIONAL Centres

48 Workforce development authority Integrated Polytechnic REGIONAL Centres (IPRCs) In 2008, the Government of Rwanda (GoR) under the Ministry of Education started the process of integrating technical education into the national curriculum. This led to the establishment of the first IPRC (IPRC Kigali) which kicked off the beginning of a system in TVET that provides professional technical education up to the level of diploma (A1). IPRC Kigali currently exists among four other Integrated Polytechnic Regional Centers in the country; IPRC-North (in Musanze district), IPRC-South (Huye district), IPRC-West (Karongi district) and IPRC-East (Ngoma district). All IPRCs act as WDA base for supervision, implementation and coordination of TVET activities in their respective locations. Integrated Polytechnic Regional Centre (IPRC-Kigali) The Skills that shape a better destiny Since its beginning, IPRC Kigali has continued to receive considerable support both from the Government of Rwanda and its external development partners. While the Government provides the biggest source of funding, the development partners have also been very supportive in funding its related development projects. Vision IPRC- Kigali aspires to be a leading world class institution in the provision of producing graduates capable of developing and implementing creative technical solutions to social and industrial needs of Rwanda, the region and international society. Mission To provide technical and vocational training at all levels in order to empower students and enhance their opportunities for career advancement and success in a global economy. To date IPRC Kigali has a highly motivated student population, which has grown from 209 in 2009 to 3662 in 2013 catering for various levels of technical courses. Academic and Training services: All diploma programs are covered in a period of 2 years and those for advanced Diploma are covered in 3 years. The duration for these programs is necessary to impart knowledge and skills required by industries. The program is offered in full time both in day and evening. Academic Departments: i) Civil Engineering Department: Currently, the department offers 5 options: Year Book
