Community development ministry calls for stakeholder collaboration in skills development


Government has encouraged stakeholder collaboration in promoting skills development.

Community Development and Social Services Director for Community, Patricia Muyamwa, said that skills development were key in personal as well as national development.

Muyamwa acknowledged the importance of acquiring practical skills as they led to job creation and increased incomes at both household and national levels.

She said this in Chirundu on Friday when she graced the inaugural graduation ceremony at Chirundu Community Development Skills Centre.

“Government is therefore determined to build relevant and critical human resource through skills development.

“In line with the 8th National Development Plan, the 13 Skills Training Centre, Chirundu inclusive, are providing efforts towards achieving a nation of professionals and skilled persons who will apply their knowledge and commitment to fight poverty and individual and community levels,” Muyamwa said

She encouraged the 32 Chirundu Community Development Skills Centre Tailoring and Designing graduates to exhibit high levels of professionalism as they carried out their duties as employees as well as businessmen or women.

Chirundu Council Chairperson, Never Muchindu, said it was not about finding white-collar jobs, but utilising skills to promote socio-economic development.

Muchindu, who also advocated for more courses to be added, called on school leavers who may face financial challenges to tap into these remarkable skills promotion opportunities through the Constituency Development Fund (CDF), to make their lives better.
