TEVETA Visits Tourism & Hospitality Project
Being implemented at DAPP Chilangoma Teachers training college (TTC) in Traditional Authority Kuntaja, Blantyre district, the Tourism and Hospitality project aims at providing an educational opportunity in tourism and hospitality to 20 young people to become reliable and profitable human resource in the tourism sector.
On the 19th of September, Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TEVETA) Assistant Training Programs Specialist for southern region’s informal sector visited the project to appreciate the implementation process to date. The students also displayed the skills they have attained through demonstrations and serving the officials.
“I am impressed with how the students demonstrated an understanding of the skills and knowledge they have learned so far” said Mr. Clifton Kambalame
The project will result in an increase in employment opportunities within Malawi’s expanding tourism industry which will in turn contribute to the country’s sustainable development.
After completing the six months of training on campus, students will then complete a 2-month professional internship within the tourism sector. Once the students successfully complete this course, they will receive a Government-recognized certificate (Technical Education Vocational Entrepreneurial &Training Authority – TEVETA) in tourism. The project started in January 2019 and phases out in 2020.
