The government says it will soon roll out specialised vocational training programmes that address the needs of specific areas through the Ministry of State for Liaising on Psychomotor Activities in Education after the conclusion of a feasibility study.
When government introduced the Ministry of State for Liaising on Psychomotor Activities in Education in 2014, many Zimbabweans failed to understand the role of the ministry which they thought was an extension of the ministry of education but after government adopted the new curriculum early this year, people are beginning to appreciate the need for students to do vocational training at an early stage of their education life.
Speaking to ZBC News in Bulawayo, the Minister of State for Liaising on Psychomotor Activities in Education Cde Josiah Hungwe says technocrats in his ministry have concluded a feasibility study on how best to incorporate relevant vocational training skills as per the needs of specific areas and the results are to be applied across the country soon.
The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education has since adopted a new curriculum which have seen primary students doing practical studies from early child development level.
Meanwhile, Cde Hungwe, who is also the Zanu PF Secretary for Labour and Production, says government is geared to unleash more developmental projects after the success of the command agriculture model.
On the 18th of this month, President Robert Mugabe officially launched the one billion dollar dualisation project of the Beitbridge-Harare and Harare-Chirundu highways at Chaka Business Center in Chirumhanzu before commissioning the US$250 million Tokwe-Mukosi dam in Chivi in projects expected to create hundreds of thousands of jobs in line with ZIM ASSET targets.
