Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (Teveta) has handed over a motor vehicle to Nasawa Technical College in Chiradzulu to enhance skills training at the centre.
Speaking during the handover on Tuesday, Teveta board chairperson Don Whayo said equipping youths at the centre with skills will improve and increase the wealth of the country and boost the jobs creation agenda.
He said this can be achieved if trainees at the centre are exposed to practical aspects of training.
Said Whayo: “As the authority, we are there to regulate the delivery of quality technical, entrepreneurial and vocational education and training by ensuring that trainees get the best out of it.
“Training that is being undertaken at Nasawa Technical College and the rest of technical colleges is crucial for the future of this country.”
He said Nasawa Technical College has been the pride of the nation as it has produced graduates who, apart from being employed in various sectors of the economy, are also running their own businesses and creating jobs.
In his remarks, the college’s principal Jeremiah Josiah thanked Teveta for the vehicle, which he said will ensure that the college produces quality graduates.
On his part, Teveta executive director Wilson Nkhoma said the institution has, so far, donated four vehicles to be used for training to Salima Technical College, Mangochi Community Technical College, Namitete Technical College and Nasawa Technical College.
Teveta board members are currently on a tour to familiarize themselves with various activities being undertaken by the authority.
