Deputy Minister of Labour Vera Kamtukule says the Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (Teveta) has a critical role to play in the development of the country by providing a skilled workforce.
She made the remarks on Tuesday during the opening of a two-day workshop of 29 technical and community college instructors and assessors in Blantyre.
Said Kamtukule: “The Government of Malawi attaches greater importance to the Tevet sector as it is one of the key factors to the building of a better Malawi.
“The importance of skills development cannot be over-emphasised if the country is to attain the Malawi 2063 Vision.”
On his part, Malawi National Examinations Board finance director Thomas Dokotala said technical college instructors and assessors need to have requisite skills to produce quality graduates.
He said the results of such assessments play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of graduates from the colleges.
Teveta acting executive director Modesto Gomani said the capacity building of the beneficiaries will ensure quality service delivery.
Maneb facilitated the workshop which drew participants from Eastern and Southern regions.
