As part of the Installation, Repair and Maintenance (IRM) Initiative, the NBI together with the government and private sector are training of TVET (technical and vocational education and training) students to expand their opportunities to embark on artisanal learning and employment pathways. This Initiative is a demand-led skills training space delivered through a public TVET College and workplace learning, through blended learning approaches and aligned to entry-level employment positions in artisanal businesses to enable wide reach and maximum opportunity for learners.

OneWorld was appointed as the course coordinator and training institute. OneWorld was responsible for developing the training material that was presented to the students, focusing particularly on environmental awareness and sustainable green practices. OneWorld was also responsible for facilitating the training virtually. The training was aimed to provide attending students with the knowledge, tools and capacity to grow their businesses in a sustainable manner.
