Following the launch of community technical colleges initiative, Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (Teveta) has invested K20 million to boost the institutions’ service delivery.
Speaking at the official closing of a 21–day training of community technical colleges’ instructors, Teveta executive director Ndione Chauluka observed it was relevant for the institution to organise the training that has been done through Domasi College of Education (DCE) in Zomba.
“Tevet authorities have so far spent over K20 million on this training. Let me, therefore, commend Domasi College of Education for the success of this training, I believe that the partnership will continue as the demand for qualified technical teachers is high,” he said.
Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Manpower Development, Patrick Kabambe said, “Our ministry would like to eradicate poverty through community technical colleges’ initiative. The objective of this initiative is to ensure that these institutions are opened in all 28 eight districts of the country.”
In his remarks, acting principal for DCE Arnold Mwanza said the institution intends to succeed in governments’ commitment over the initiative.
“We will strive to make sure the initiative is supported by well qualified instructors so that the education sector in the country produces reliable tutors,” he said.
