Act No. 9 of 1997 empowers the Council “to establish awards in technical education which are consistent in standard and comparable to related awards at national and international levels”.

NACTE awards are known as National Technical Awards (NTA) and adopt a Competence-based (CBET) modular system (credit-based).

The Council has to set qualifications standards for the awards, hence the objectives.

The NTA are designed to testify that the holder of the award is able to apply competently the knowledge and skills described in the relevant occupational sector.

The NTA system has seven levels linked to a three level system of VETA, known as National Vocational Training Awards (NVTA), to provide a ten level framework of Technical and Vocational (TVET) qualifications.

Each NTA qualification has a broad competence level descriptor.

Tanzania oil and gasTanzania oil and gas
The Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation (TPDC), a state oil firm, plans to open the fourth deep-offshore bidding round on April 12, this year as it seeks more exploration companies to take part in the country’s oil and gas sector, its officials have said. The company responsible for one of Australia’s worst oil spills has been given permission by the Commonwealth Government to continue, and potentially expand, its operations in Australian waters.

Using Africa's Resources for Development - Part 1Using Africa’s Resources for Development – Part 1
Prof. Paul Collier advises how Africa should benefit from mineral, oil and gas extraction. The current high prices for minerals, oil and gas offer an opportunity for resource-rich countries in Africa to transform their economies and thereby the lives of its people. Yet this ‘golden opportunity’ can be ruined by corruption, environmental degradation and mismanagement, with benefits limited to a lucky few. What policies do governments need to have in place for the responsible exploitation of minerals, oil and gas? How can African economies prepare themselves to manage new found wealth? How can governments invest and save for future generations? How should exploration rights be valued and extraction companies taxed? Professor Paul Collier explained his strategy for stimulating economic growth in developing countries through selling natural resources such as minerals, oil and gas at an event hosted in Tanzania by UONGOZI Institute on 20 February 2012 The Institute of African Leadership for Sustainable Development, commonly known as UONGOZI Institute, offers training, discussions and resources on leadership, executive management and strategic thinking to leaders in Africa engaged in sustainable development.
