For many young people in Cambodia, educational choices are made in light of economic conditions. This means that education is often not a priority. The aim of the Vocational Education Program is to provide further educational opportunities to a small number of disadvantaged young people in Phnom Penh, and to enhance their future prospects. The current Vocational Education Program, which has been running for 4 years, is supported by APHEDA.
To provide vocational skills to disadvantaged young people in order for them to be able to generate an income.
The English Language unit provides students with practical skills in speaking, listening and writing. This is taught by our English Teacher Mr Mao Ye and CWDA’s native speaking voluntary interns.
The computer class offers practical skills in office management software packages and trains the student how to write articles, letters, reports, and budgets using Microsoft Office programs.
All students attending CWDA’s vocational training course attend general education classes for a total of 60 hours.
The topics include tele communication skills on how to use the telephone, dealing with problems such as a bad line, wrong numbers, taking messages, telephoning for someone else and making appointments.
