Background

In Cambodia, the Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS) practises a networked public-private partnership to sustain its operation at Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Kep, Battambang and Poipet. Since Cambodia was upgraded from lower-income to lower-middle bracket (World Bank, 2016), the challenge was to pivot from foreign-subsidized to self-sustainable.

Hence, the networked public-private partnership seeks country-wide and regional-wide cooperation with public and private key TVET stakeholders, through which to aggregate various resources to deliver holistic skills development. Its aim is to provide value for money and long-term access to TVET for the underprivileged youths even when stakeholders change over time.

This good practice highlights the complementary roles non-governmental organizations (NGOs) could play in delivering core social services in TVET and providing integral and inclusive education for the development of life and work skills. The spirit of networking should spring from a TVET common ground; for youths to find better employment opportunities, to raise their standard of living and to alleviate poverty.
