MEXA, as the private sector representative of the export community, embraced the Dual Training Programme model in 2014. We took the challenge to develop our own industry-based curriculum for the export sector which was launched for the first time on a dual training concept, that is, work and study at the same time.

MEXA successfully developed two DTP projects, namely, the

.“Technician Diploma in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering” with Université des Mascareignes in 2015 and

.“Diploma in International Business and Logistics” with Charles Telfair Institute in 2016.

Be it from the perspective of the companies, students and academic institutions, the 2 DTP projects have achieved the objective of being an effective solution to address the issue of mismatch and reduce the high youth unemployment in Mauritius. At MEXA level, we are confident that these students will be the best technicians that the industry will have with the best skills, expertise and know-how.
