The UNU-FTP offers financial and technical support to develop short courses in developing countries. This support is often provided in cooperation with international organizations. Through the process of short course development, the UNU-FTP aims to enhance the capacity of our partner countries to deliver fisheries education at a local level.
The outcome of short course development is the course material, translated into the local language, and trained local professionals to teach the course. The courses are housed in training and/or educational institutes in an attempt to ensure sustained positive impact. The UNU-FTP requires that former UNU-FTP fellows take part in the development of the course. When the course has been designed and the teachers trained, then local teachers take over and deliver the course to the target group.
Note! Some course materials are available upon request.
