Myanmar Industry Training Activity (MITA)
MITA is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and is focused on strengthening Myanmar’s livestock educational institutions and vocational training systems so that those institutions can provide a sufficient supply of qualified and competent people to meet the growing needs of the Myanmar livestock sector.
The project has three major outputs:
Supporting the University of Veterinary Science, Yezin to strengthen the four-year Bachelor of Animal Science Undergraduate Degree programme, including the improved delivery of farm management, farm economics, extension science and food technology subjects.
Providing vocational strengthening to Myanmar State Agriculture Institutions (SAIs) to deliver improved animal husbandry at Diploma level. This output is being delivered in collaboration with a Netherlands capacity building project (NICHE). Our initial work is being undertaken at the Patheingyi SAI located in Mandalay.
Institutional and capacity building support to Livestock Department (LBVD) to deliver competency-based training for the livestock sector workforce. This activity is working closely with the LBVD Human Resources team to build capability and capacity to deliver improved training solutions and short courses to department staff and the wider industry in the workplace.
