Zambian Empowerment Hub for Entrepreneurship and Skills Training (ZEHEST) says Zambia is on track towards achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 4 on education following efforts to address challenges in the sector.
Organization Executive Director Clarence Muzyamba told Money FM News that the recruitment of 30,496 teachers across the country is an important milestone as it will positively contribute towards improving the quality of education through the pupil – teacher ratio.
Mr. Muzyamba said the Organization believes that the many efforts that have been made so far will help improve skills training, job creation and poverty reduction.
“It is important to state that the recruitment process was surrounded by the Decentralization Policy of bottom- up approach. ZEHEST believes that there was adherence to integrity and aligning to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) mantra of ‘Leaving No One Behind,” Mr. Muzyamba said.
He encouraged government to continue maintaining and constructing more teachers’ houses and step up efforts in providing adequate desks as guided by the Head of State.
According to Ministry of Education, the over 30,496 newly recruited teachers are expected to report for work in September, 2022 and will be put on the pay roll as soon as they report to their schools.
