Developing Knowledge-based Economy
Economic Empowerment through Skills Development
Trained manpower and skilled human resource plays essential role in
economic development of the country. UVAS has collaborated with Punjab
Skills Development Fund (PSDF) to impart practical trainings to the youth of
Punjab through various short courses in livestock sector having duration from
three to six months. Under this collaboration UVAS experts at Institute of Continuing
Education & Extension (ICE&E) have trained 278 trainees so far. As a part of our
strategic focus on promoting self-employment, these short courses have enabled the
qualified students to become self-employed utilizing or selling the skills they have obtained
through training at UVAS.
UVAS has also joined hands with Technical Education & Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA)
and Pakistan Poultry Association (PPA) to initiate diploma courses to train manpower required by
the industry. These capacity building initiatives by UVAS in collaboration with industry and the
stakeholders are contributing towards economic momentum in the country.
