The Namibia Training Authority’s mandate is set out in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Act, Act 1 of 2008, which grants the Board of Directors overall responsibilities for the management and control of the affairs of the NTA.

As the regulating body of the VET sector in Namibia, the NTA is entrusted with the effective regulation of the provision of VET in Namibia. The NTA contributes to the establishment of an effective and sustainable system of skills formation aligned with the needs of the labour market and which provides the skills required for accelerated development. In this system, competencies are developed that are needed for productive work and increased standards of living.
Moreover, the NTA promotes access, equity and quality in VET.

The NTA has a multi-faceted mandate, under which it regulates the VET sector in Namibia, funds the provision of VET services and renders training services though the seven formerly state-owned Vocational Training Centres (VTCs) placed under its supervision.

Its daily operations involve coordinating, providing and maintaining a wide range of Vocational Education and Training and related support services.
