GOVERNMENT will this year embark on the construction of university colleges in Katete, Solwezi, and Nalolo districts. Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education permanent secretary Patrick Nkanza has said.
Dr Nkanza said when he officially opened the Zambia Education for All (EFA) review national consultative workshop in Lusaka yesterday that Government will continue with its policy of establishing public universities.
“The university college at Katete will offer applied arts while the one in Solwezi will offer technology and Science courses. The Nalolo university college will offer mathamatics and Science programmes,” Dr Nkanza said.
He also said Government has designed an innovative intervention programme called “Fast Track Teacher Training” and entered into partnership with different universities to help in upgrading of teachers’ qualifications.
