All Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) tutors, have been ordered to go back to class for refresher training in order to impart modern technical skills to the students in TVET institutions.
For that reason, all TVET tutors will have to undergo fresh retraining in order to effectively teach inline with emerging trends in the industry.
According to the PS, re-skilling is part of fresh reforms being carried out across the technical institutions. The reforms include fresh training and internship programmes to enhance quality education.
The move comes when it emerged that some tutors in middle-level colleges are not well conversant in their areas of expertise. This has crippled the industry linkages affecting imparting skills to the students.
Most tutors got their training from universities that did not have modern equipments that are presently used in the Technical Training Institutes.
After those TTIs acquired modernised equipment, the skill gaps were broader therefore producing half baked students.
Basically, the discrepancies were detected during the transition to Competency Based Education and Training, CBET, that showed most tutors were not well equipped to the changes.
As part of the reforms, the government is now rolling out professional refresher training programmes for all college tutors in order to improve their mastery skills.
Other areas to be covered include human resources, financial management and governance.
It's now obvious that the TVET tutors will have to go for refresher training so as to remain relevant in the teaching field.
The aim is to prepare trainees in TVET Colleges for the labour market and expanding entrepreneur space for them.
