Teachers Hail New Curriculum As The Answer To Present Challenges

The Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association (ZIMTA) said that the new curriculum came at the right time as it will produce graduates who are effective participants in society.

This was said by ZIMTA chief executive officer Sifiso Ndlovu on Tuesday in an interview with state media on the sidelines of the organisation’s national annual conference in held Harare. Said Sibanda:

It is important for teachers to be well trained and developed so as to produce graduates who are effective participants in society.

The new curriculum is the answer to the new generation. We want a generation which creates employment, not to rely on being employed as was the benefit of the old curriculum.

Gone are the days when institutions used to produce people who are only trained to be employed. Institutions must contribute to the development of the nation through graduates who have solutions to challenges.

Sibanda commended the government for adopting the new curriculum as it will equip the present generation with the necessary knowledge required on the job.

  1. I think these Sifiso Ndlovu etc dont really know their purpose as representatives of teachers. Or is it becoz their pockets are full of pieces of silver they were given to to betray those whom they shud be representing. Not even ashamed to come out and talk of the so-called new curricullum when teachers do no have a clue on how they will return to their stations without bus fare and groceries. Its a shame.
