The National Training Board was formally constituted
in 1996 in recognition by the Royal Government of
Cambodia that a coordinated, long-term development plan
was needed for technical vocational education and
training (TVET). Of most importance, the legislation
forming the NTB ensured that it could take effective
action and not simply receive reports. Senior members of
each Ministry with training were appointed and the
Deputy Prime Minister himself took the leadership role.

National Employment Agency, abbreviated as NEA, is a Special Operating Agency under the jurisdiction of the National Training Board. The Agency was established by sub-decree and aimed at improving the quality and effective delivery of labor market information services by providing job seekers, employees, employers, and skill training providers the opportunities to exchange information with one another.
Related Ministries plan their training needs to be
implemented for the up coming years. Training need
analysis will then be publicly posted to create
awareness amongst training providers to supply proper
training to cater the demand of respective Ministry.

In a recent Human Resource Study in a neighbouring
country, the primary concern of more than 80 percent of
employers: finding workers with a good work ethic and
appropriate social behaviour: reliable, a good attitude,
a pleasant appearance, a good personality.
The National Employment Agency (NEA) concept was
approved by the National Training Board in January of
2008 and planning is at an advanced stage. The global
objective of the NEA is to match workers seeking jobs
with employers seeking new staff. But it will be much
more than this. With 9 planned centers, it will share
information across the country and for the first time,
give access to the national labor market for everyone.
