Students On Industrial Attachment To Start Receiving Payouts From Govt: Prof Murwira

Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Professor Amon Murwira has said that starting from August 2018, students on industrial attachment will start receiving government payouts. The move is meant to cater for food and transport costs of  students from State-run universities.

Speaking to the Sunday Mail, Murwira said:

It is part of our 100-day plan to start giving the students on attachment a certain amount of money that will help them during their attachment.

As of now, there is no certain figure yet, but what is certain is that they are going to get the money starting this August.

No matter how little the money might be, the principle is that they are going to receive the money based on what is available.

We have to at least facilitate their transport cost to and from work and at least money for lunch.

The minister also revealed that apprenticeship programme was going to be revived next month after a break.

The apprenticeship programme which had been stopped for the past few years has already started and apprentices will be enrolled at various polytechnics this March.

The apprenticeship is to improve the country, it is a way of industrialization. Apprentices are the technologists and we cannot operate without apprenticeship or industrialise without technicians.
