In October 1996, the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, through the then Ministry of Higher Education, Vocational Training, Science and Technology, conducted a feasibility study to explore the possibility of financing the construction of the Eenhana Vocational Training Centre.

The completion of the study was followed by political instability alongside the Namibia/Angola border that forced many international non-governmental organisations and agencies, including the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, to withdraw technical and financial support to development ptojects in the region.

The Ministry of Education took over the project to construct the Eenhana Vocational Training Centre (EVTC).

EVTC officially opened its doors in May 2011. The centre conducts its operations under the realm of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Act, No. 1 of 2008, which makes provision for the management and control of all state-owned vocational training centres to be devolved upon the Namibia Training Authority, until such time that these centres, in the opinion of the Board of Directors of the NTA, are transformed into self-reliant vocational education and training providers.

As one of seven formerly state-owned vocational training centres now under the supervision of the Namibia Training Authority, Eenhana VTC has as its core business the training of young technically inclined Namibians in key vocational and technical areas. To this end, it focuses on offering:

• Newly- designed unit standards and qualifications under the Competency-Based Education and Training (CBET) curricula;
• A variety of training and up-skilling courses aimed at enhancing the technical and entrepreneurial skills of members of the community in which it operates;
• Namibia Qualifications Authority-accredited formal courses that are listed on the National Qualifications Framework, based on identified demands and resulting in an increase of highly qualified artisans and professional in various trade- or professional areas for the labour market; and
• A variety of informal skills- and entrepreneurial training based on requested and established demands, ultimately leading to improved local and regional entrepreneurial development; and

Other services to the community and business sector, such as business information and support, counseling, product development, business mentorship and referrals.

The Eenhana VTC aligns itself to the strategic path of its parent organisation, the Namibia Training Authority, who in turn has prioritised the provision of effective and efficient training services as a key deliverable under its current five-year Strategic Plan.

Not only are the vision and mission of the Eenhana VTC aligned to that of the NTA, the centre also subscribes to the notion of establishing itself as a value-driven organisation, under which its staff and stakeholders collectively strive towards raising the bar as far as the delivery of effective and efficient vocational and technical training services at the centre are concerned.
