Vice President Mutale Nalumango has said that the United Party for National Development (UPND) administration will ensure the quality of education is not compromised at all levels of learning.

Mrs. Nalumango said that President Hakainde Hichilema has placed the education of Citizens top on his priority.

The Vice President was speaking when a team from the National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA) Governing Council paid a courtesy call on her at her office.

Mrs. Nalumango urged the NIPA Governing Council and Management to strengthen relations with various industries to know which areas need personnel trained to run their industries efficiently.

She said Government is happy to learn of IT programs at NIPA, as the e-Government program will equally benefit from it.

Mrs. Nalumango emphasized the need for the institution to offer quality education.

NIPA Governing Council Chairperson Mary Ngoma said the council embraces change while acknowledging the Presidential pronouncement of executing duties professionally.

Professor NGOMA said the Council hopes Government will continue with the national school of Governance within NIPA to train and retrain civil servants.

Meanwhile, the names of 1200 teachers that have been recruited will be published tomorrow. Teaching Service Commission Chairperson Stanley Mhango says the list includes 347 persons with disabilities who met the qualifications.

Mr. Mhango says the recruitment process went through Human Resource Management Committees in all the Districts.

He told ZNBC news in an interview that the Commission has now revised the service conditions of 1973 to allow a decentralized recruitment process.

Mr. Mhango said the recruitment exercise met the criteria as it was done in a transparent manner.

  2. What you need to stop is mass production of teachers as it reduces quality. Government colleges should not run private colleges within institutions. Please investigate and act on it.

  3. HH respect this lady Mutale, she represents the masses who voted for you man.
    You see you people, life feels good without PF.

  4. Reminiscing and nalstagia should not turn into policy. We need to move forward. Please explain what your perception of quality education should be. We in Zambia are scared to even produce our own matchsticks because you need a university degree to do that. Those with degrees in turn point to imports and investors. Quality education should be the complete lifecycle of eduction from primary to employment. How are we failing to produce home grown quality engineers who would add value to our natural resources?

  5. ONE SHOULD KNOW TEACHERS WERE CHOSEN ANYHOW UNDER THE PF
    I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO GET 30 TEACHERS OF ALL GRADES AND GIVE THEM THE SAME EXAM THE PUPILS GET AT YEAR END
    YOU WILL FIND ATLEAST 50% WILL BE UNDER AVERAGE
    SO GOVERNMENT NOW HAS A MASSIVE TASK AHEAD IN RECTIFYING THIS

  6. HH should have kept Ministry of Finance and Agriculture to himself.
    Zambia needs Agribusiness nothing else.

  7. Indeed, we need to know how UPND will gurantee the quality of education at all levels. Throwing around words without a plan is not what guarantees the quality of education.

  8. I think the education system should be easing up in Zambia I mean, the numbers of subjects are immense ,they should be reduced, i mean those un nessersary ones off on the education curriculum. it’s a bit confusing mastering 9 subjects at one goal and also students should be identified on what they are good at. it’s not that fundamental that when you fail in centain subjects means you not good enough in everything no, that’s why we have different jobs based on what you are good at. we shouldn’t have high exepectation for all the students to know everything! what i’m trying to say is, ask student what they would like to be when they finish there education and let teachers, lecturers and all above to work on those students’ desires and what will subjects them to the subjects that go…

  9. There is a lot that needs attention in the education sector for quality to be attained and much is dependent on all stake holders! If anything its the strength of the foundation that holds a firm structure! Elementary school is the bedrock of later gains in education! The appropriate teacher to pupils per class ratio must be established first and adhered to as this would in turn determine classes space and teaching staff requirements! @ John Mule you note it better on the number of subjects and it wouldn’t hurt if the reduction in number paid attention to those subjects that qualify one to enrolling into tertiary learning institutions. Some subjects do not need examination but only proficiency.

  10. @barotse i think it,s also important to investigate why everyone wants to be a teacher in the first place because this is what is leading to the proliferation of teacher colleges
    It,s quite painful that we talk of industrialisation and yet we have to keep importing simple gadgets like electric plugs from asia

  11. Thumbs up to our mother, real mother who stood by the party and the president even when hope seemed to have been lost, even when pf was walloping you in those useless by elections you never back down you never prostituted like the fake edith. Now God has rewarded your Faith and you will be a two termer plus endless joy and laughter . Who laughs last laughs the loudest

  12. Emphasize on Enterprenuership and innovation in schools, create favourable policiesto support the youths to start there business and help to advertise Zambian products for small scale manufacturers , create deliberate markets for the products. Make innovation and entrepreneurship as attractive as being in formal employment, with results that can sustain someone immediate basic needs. Together we can make it, Zambia forward.

  13. We need to stop this nonsense of teaching local languages, most pupils fail to understand sciences because of poor english. We all have our own languages it’s the responsibility of parents that thier child learns his tribal language.
