Government challenged to entrench skills training curriculum
A youth Non-Governmental Organisation has challenged government to entrench skills training in the schoolcurriculum.
Zambian Institute of Careers and Motivation (ZICAM) Executive Director Isaac Likuji says Zambia needs a generation of young people with a spirit of economic independence.
Mr. Likuji says the celebration of independence on the theme centered on economic prosperity poses a challenge to the young people to play a bigger role in realizing the vision.
He has outlined that the academic system in its current form merely trains the young people to wait for formalemployment in the civil service which is not sufficient to absorb the high numbers of those complementing tertiary education. / end muvitv
