The academy was established in Kabul in 1971, Wardak recalled, saying the building had become dysfunctional during the civil war.

Graduates from the academy are hired as teachers in vocational schools, the minister informed. The number of vocational schools will increase to 500 from the current 129 over the next 10 years.
