Contribution to National Development

Over the years, NVI has made significant contributions to the development of this Nation, the National Development Plan and Vision 2040 of transforming Uganda from a peasant country through a middle income to a modern and prosperious country. This has been done through providing competent, well skilled and employable labour force. On average, NVI churns out 520 well skilled youth (including those on special programs) per year to the National labour force. The government of Uganda has therefore, recognized the efforts of the Institute in the past four consecutive years by ranking us as the best Private Vocational Institute in the country. Through our follow up and Industrial training office, over 80% of our graduates get absorbed in the world of work annually at graduation time as shown by the statistics below of the previous years.
