Entrepreneurship has become the mainstream economic, social and financial buzzword. It is supported by political leaders, championed by non-governmental organisations, reinforced by the tertiary education system and venture capitalists. As a result, entrepreneurs are now emerging from almost anywhere, in any shape and go any direction. Technical education, vocational and entrepreneurship training (TEVET) is one of the major drivers of enterprising societies and economically empowered citizens across the globe.
PROFILE PICTURE: President Michael Sata making a POINT during the 2nd Session of the 11th National Assembly!
President Michael Sata says vocational education was critical to national development; hence government was realigning the educational system to ensure that academic and vocational learning pathways were harmonised from early childhood to tertiary education levels.
Speaking during the 3rd Session of the 11th National Assembly, the President said the enacted Higher Education Act (leading to the establishment of the Higher Qualification Authority) would improve quality of training and standardise qualifications for sanity to be realised in the country’s education system.
