The Additional Secretary said the government was creating the post to address the acute manpower crisis in technical schools and colleges currently run by one-third of the staff. It is expected that the quality of education and enrollment will increase after the recruitment. He said the move is part of the government’s priority to develop technical and vocational education to create skilled manpower for the current job market at home and abroad.
