This initiative is in line with pillar 4 of the Human Resource Development Strategy which seeks to promote the creation of employment opportunities for unemployed youth, giving them access to participate in the country’s economy
The signed MOU between the two entities will ensure the empowerment of the youth through: –
• A recruitment drive for all unemployed youth who aspire to be educators.
• Registration for 200 Education Assistants and General School Assistants on small business management training.
This recruitment drive is a concentrated approach employed to attract the unemployed youth into the teaching profession in line with the priorities of government.
