The Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TEVETA) has disclosed that the country is experiencing high demand amongst youths interested in enrolling in technical colleges.
According to TEVETA Executive Director Wilson Nkhoma, out of the 28 community technical colleges government planned to construct, only 14 are fully operational.
Nkhoma said, "Space is very limited as such there is need for speedy completion of the remaining colleges as well as fast track rollout of 193 constituency community colleges."
Nkhoma said the constituency community colleges will ease access to vocational skills for many youths thereby helping in the creation of the much touted one million jobs.
He further underscored that graduates from technical colleges have huge potential to transform the country’s economy.
