Industrial and Vocational Training Board

The Industrial and Vocational Training Board, set up under the IVT Act No.8 of 1988, became operational in 1989.


It was assigned the roles of regulator, facilitator, and provider of training. In 2001, Government decided that the organisation would focus on its role as an enhanced provider of training, leaving the regulatory role to the Mauritius Qualifications Authority, and the role of facilitator to the Human Resource Development Council. The IVT Act was subsequently amended.

The IVTB has grown at a very fast pace over the last 16 years and today operates 12 Training Centres providing courses in more than 50 different fields at different levels including some at tertiary level as well. It has created a solid reputation and the IVTB is today a household word. It has helped to train more than 50,000 persons directly through its centres.

Government’s decision to make the IVTB an enhanced provider of training has come at a very opportune time as review of the TVET Sector is high of the national agenda. The IVTB has always aimed at ensuring that responds to the training needs of the existing and emerging sectors of the economy.

The IVTB is presently operating under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Human Resources.
