The Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training Authority (Teveta) has asked entrepreneurs to be more innovative and come up with ideas for improving people’s socio-economic status as well as solutions to society’s problems.
Teveta’s Director of Training, Modesto Gomani, observed that mo s t vocational trainees fail to impress because they do not put customers’ interests first.
Gomani made t h e remarks when the vocational skills training board awarded certificates to 63 students that have completed various trainings at Jenga Community Skills Centre in Rumphi.
Gomani asked the graduating students to be creative to succeed in a competitive market.
“These people are being trained but one problem which is very common is that their products lack quality. They don’t finish their work to satisfy a customer .They don’t put customers’ interests as the first priority,” Gomani said.
The students received training in various sector including, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), fabrication, tinting, carpentry and tailoring.
