The Technical, Entrepreneurial Vocational and Educational Training Authority (Teveta) said yesterday it has drafted a five-year strategic plan in line with the country’s national policies to help in economic growth.
Teveta executive director Yusuf Alide said this in Blantyre when the authority met various stakeholders to discuss its final draft of the strategic plan to run from 2013 to 2018.
He said the authority had also taken into account the weaknesses of the 2007 to 2012 strategic plan and improved them in the new strategic plan.
Alide said the previous strategic plan lacked emphasis on stakeholder interface which, he said, is critical to the operations of Teveta.
“The new strategic plan is important because the authority wants to achieve commitment in increasing its access and improving quality of Tevet programmes by expanding its capacity in Malawi,” he said.
Alide added that the authority also wants to promote an integrated, demand-driven competency based modular technical education and training systems and also facilitate sound and sustainable financing and funding mechanisms for technical education and training.
