Vocational training key to industrial recovery

Vocational training has been cited as key to the country’s industrial recovery process as it will equip workers with the much needed technical skills to work in the factories.

In order to compliment the government’s reform efforts in boosting economic and industrial recovery, it is crucial that learning institutions equip students with the much needed technical skills.

Cognisant of this fact, the University of Zimbabwe has embarked on workshops to train educationists and industrialists on ways to capacitate learning institutions with technical and vocational skills in the country.

Speaking on the sidelines of one such workshop in Harare this Wednesday, Professor Albert Makochekanwa of the UZ said higher learning institutions should prioritise technical and vocational education.

Due to the massive de-industrialisation and informalisation of the economy, Zimbabwe has lost most of its human capital to neighbouring countries.
