The Instituto Técnico Superior del Este (ITSE), instigated by President Juan Carlos Varela, is a visionary initiative for the development of young people in Panama. It will provide students with world class vocational training and enable them to secure high quality jobs with the nation’s employers that support economic growth in Panama.

The new college ITSE will be a state-of-the-art purpose built campus close to Tocumen Airport. With a planned opening date of January 2019, ITSE will train up to 5000 technical professionals at any one time in a range of subjects including logistics, languages, business, electronics, construction, engineering, tourism and hospitality. These areas of study were chosen based on People 1st’s labour market needs analysis and validated by their own research.
