Government Names Technical High Schools In Zimbabwe

Government Names Technical High Schools In Zimbabwe

At the end of 2022, the Zimbabwean government announced that it would introduce Technical High Schools in 2023. It also said that the initiative would start as a pilot with just one school per province converted into a Technical High School.

At the announcement of the initiative, Education Minister Paul Mavhima explained the concept:

As a ministry, we decided to come up with these schools of excellence that favours the competence of learners in their respective areas of choice with the targeted subjects of learning being technical and science ones.

Students focusing on those subjects will be examined and awarded by the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (ZIMSEC). The certificates will be on par with an Advanced Level certificate, with holders able to enroll at university.

This week, Primary and Secondary Education ministry secretary Tumisang Thabela said that the government has now identified the schools which will serve as the first Technical High Schools in Zimbabwe. 

The schools include:

  • Hwange High School (Matabeleland North province), which will specialise in textile technology and design
  • Luveve High School (Bulawayo Province) specializing in aviation studies
  • Allan Wilson High School (Harare) specialising in metal technology and design
  • Chipindura High School  (Mashonaland Central) providing building technology
  • Umzingwane High (Matabeleland South) which will specialise in wood work

Said Thabela to NewsDay:

“The technical high schools will endeavour to help pupils acquire innovative industrial skills that will either fit them well into industry or enable them to be job creators as opposed to being job seekers.

The ministry — in line with equity development has started an initiative of converting ordinary classrooms into science laboratories. It will increase the uptake of STEM learning areas. There is need to raise those schools outside the national electricity grid to experience green energy in their schools for improved operations.

I. recommend Govt on this progressive move.
Howeve theres still room for improvement
as, I suggest , graduands from the technical high schools should be immediately employable or be able to work independently.
Isnt a good idea that the technical high schools should award certificates equivalent to , say,
class 2 or 3 trade qualifs. eg Boilermaker, Carpenter , Welder etc ..
