One of the ESTRIP project targets is to increase outreach and support for non-project national TVET institute to maximize the impact of the regional flagship TVET institutes and incentivize them to partner with non-project TVET institutes. Accordingly, Holeta Polytechnic College is supporting 3 selected non-project national TVET College that is Shashamane, Batu and Bako TVET College. The partnership provides both horizontal exchanges and vertical articulation of programmes from certificate to diploma and bachelors. The short-term training programme for the non-project TVET institutes was to provide better understanding of action research and take as part of continuous professional development practices.
