What we are doing now...

The Timor-Leste formal training system is:

  • establishing national standards for accredited training courses;
  • accrediting training providers to deliver national courses;
  • providing national training curriculum for accredited training providers; and
  • issuing national qualifications for people completing accredited training;
1 national training standards
1. National Training Standards

Industry sub-Commissions set the training and skill standards for all industries.

Industry sub-Commissions have INDMO, industry, unions and training provider representatives.

  • Industry sub-Commissions exist for Tourism & Hospitality, Administration, Finance & ICT, Construction, Education & Training.
  • by 2012, Industry sub-Commissions will be established for Agriculture, Automotive, Maritime & Petroleum, Health & Community Services.

By 2015, National training standards will cover all accredited training for levels 1 to 4 and will specify:

  • education entry level requirements;
  • training lessons (training curriculum);
  • level of knowledge and skill required (competence) ;
  • classroom and workplace training and experience;
  • Assessment of a learner’s competence in training;
  • the qualifications issued for completed training.

  • every organisation delivering accredited training and issuing national qualifications will be an Accredited Training Provider (ATPs).
  • ATPs may include technical high schools, Government training centres and polytechnics as well as industry and community training organisations.
  • ATPs will have approved training facilities, qualified trainers and deliver national training programs to the new national standards

The Timor-Leste National Qualifications Framework (NQF) was approved by the Council of Ministers in 2011.

The NQF will cover all post-secondary education and training, meaning:

  • The recognition of the skill gained based on level of qualification.
indmo the national accreditation body
INDMO – the National accreditation body


  • Accredits Training Providers
  • Approves standards set by industry
  • Approves qualifications Levels 1 to 4 in the National Framework.

other key issues for the national training framework
Other key issues for theNational Training Framework
  • Equality – this is about fairness and economic efficiency as a cohesive society is a better place to do business.
  • The social and economic partners - Government, businesses, unions and NGOs need to work together to set standards and comment on Government training policy.


other key issues continued
Other key issues (continued...)
  • Payment for training and people in training - Government, industry and civil society may need to establish national and industry agreements on who pays for training and who pays wages for a working trainee.
  • Laws for the vocational education and training – new laws may be required to support government, business, unions and community stakeholders in setting training agreements and other training standards.
