The Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training (TEVET) Authority is a regulatory body established in 1999 by an Act of Parliament.  It was founded to operate as an independent and autonomous body mandated to create an integrated TEVET system in Malawi that is demand–driven, competence-based, modular, comprehensive, accessible, flexible and consolidated enough to service both the rural and urban Malawian population.

The major purpose of the TEVET Authority is to contribute to human resource development through sustainable skills training and development to spearhead the country’s production and export–led socio–economic growth.

TEVET Authority implements its programmes guided by the national development agenda and sectoral policies informing the TEVET Sector in Malawi and the region. These include: TEVET Policy; National Education Sector Policy 2007-2017; Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol on Education; SADC Industrial Development Policy Framework; African Union TEVET Policy; and the Sustainable Development Goals, among others.
