PIC: Honorable Minister Ken Kandodo and Dr Betchani Tchereni during the launch
The Minister of Labour, Honourable Ken Kandodo, on Monday April 12, 2021 opened the TEVETA instructors professional development pedagogy training which is being hosted by The Polytechnic.

The aim of the training is to equip skills lecturers and instructors on the best methodologies which are essential when teaching students in their various fields.

Speaking during the launch, the Minister outlined that the instructors are largely trained in technical matters, without little or no coverage of teaching methods, in theory and practice.  Pedagogy is therefore essential in order to build capacity of the trainers to understand teaching approaches and how they affect learners. 

“Skills development is a pillar for socio-economic development of any country. Education and skills play an important role in the transformation of the economies.  This is the more reason why the Tonse Government has prioritized skills development, among other priorities,” said the Minister.

Honourable Kandodo added that this commitment is encapsulated in the new Malawi’s Vision 2063, which the President of the Republic of Malawi, His Excellency Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera launched on 20th January, 2021.  

In his remarks, the Acting Vice Principal Dr Betchani Tchereni explained that it is essential for these teachers to undergo this training because Polytechnic has professional and experienced instructors who will impart imperative knowledge on how best they can handle different levels of students in their classes.

Also present were Chief Executive Officer of TEVETA, Wilson Makulumiza Nkhoma, Director of Technical and Vocational Training at the Ministy of Labour Aubrey Matemba, delegates from TEVETA, Polytechnic and from the ministry.
