Current International Partnerships and Projects

Camosun offers two delivery modes to meet the needs of international clients: in Canada, on one of our campuses in Victoria, or on-site at the partner’s location. We work with local and global partners to build our clients’ capacity in Competency-Based Education and Training (CBET), focusing on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).

Meeting the needs of industry in Tanzania
