Primary & Secondary School Pupils To Be Taught How To Start Businesses

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education will soon introduce entrepreneurship studies as a subject to be taught at both primary and secondary level.

This was revealed by Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema during a media briefing in Bulawayo on Saturday. Mathema said:

The process (to introduce entrepreneurship studies) has already begun and the subject will be launched very soon.

For too long our education has not moved along with changing times and that has affected the quality of our graduates.

We want to produce people who, even if they cannot find a job after finishing school, can start their businesses.

I am talking about start-ups which can go on to be big enterprises, not just small projects.

Minister Mathema added that the new subject will enable pupils to take advantage of the resources surrounding them as a launchpad to transform their lives and communities.

Currently, all State universities offer entrepreneurship studies as a compulsory module in a bid to produce business-minded graduates.
