592 graduates from Seke Teachers College have received their Diplomas in Education amid calls by the Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development to teach children sciences at a tender age.

It was a day to remember for hundreds of graduates who received their diplomas after three years of training.

The graduands had every reason to smile after years of intensive training and those who spoke to the ZBC News said they are ready to go and practice what they were taught.

The principal of Seke Teachers College, Mr Ephraim Nutubuki said as a college their wish is to enrol and teach degree programmes as the staff members prepare themselves for the challenge.

Guest speaker at the graduation ceremony, the Deputy Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Dr Godfrey Gandawa said teacher education system should adequately prepare teachers who will impart skills that will allow students to be innovators, technical and scientific workers.

Under the new curriculum the Zimbabwean education system now requires scientific innovators with a scientific base that prepares students for jobs of the future.
