CBC Transition from Basic to Technical and Vocational  Education and Training (TVET)

Transition from Basic Education to TVET will be relatively seamless under CBC. This is because learners will have specialized in the relevant areas at Senior Secondary School level, including  dual certification depending on learner’s ability and career  interests.

Further, some programmes in the TVET sector have adopted Competency Based  Teacher Education (CBTE) which is closely aligned to the CBC approach.
