Vocational training ranks higher in Tanzania's new education policy: official

DAR ES SALAAM, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- A senior Tanzanian cabinet minister said Tuesday that the newly reviewed education and training policy of 2014 has given prominence to vocational training.

Adolf Mkenda, the east African nation's Minister for Education, Science and Technology, said a review of the education and training policy and curricula to strengthen the quality of education in the country has been completed.

"Stakeholders' views on the need to strengthen vocational training in the new education policy to be launched later have been seriously taken into account," Mkenda told a meeting of education stakeholders and development partners in the capital Dodoma.

He told the meeting that vocational training was pertinent to achieving socio-economic development.

The process of reviewing the education and training policy of 2014 and curricula followed directives by President Samia Suluhu Hassan when she addressed parliament in 2021.
