Tanzania: Veta Stresses Practical Training of Technicians

TECHNICAL training tutors are advised to use practical methods to teach students, to equip them with proper skills.

A trainer and inventor of science formulas for teaching at the Vocational Education and Training Authority (VETA), Mr Ernest Daniel, noted that using practical methods in teaching will enable the student understand better.

"Most of the time teachers use theories, but using practical methods in teaching will make students understand better," he explained. He said the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training needs to understand the importance using practical teaching methods in technical colleges, so that they can produce skilled workers.

In recognition of its importance in providing education in every sector, VETA has established four new colleges in different regions. Ms Janeth Nyoni, one of the exhibitors manning one of the stalls at VETA pavilion said among the new colleges include Hotel management training college in Njoro Arusha.

VETA also received two awards at 36th Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair (DITF) in the category of Skills development. VETA Public Relations Manager Ms Grace Kabogo attributed the victory to the authority's competence and determination in producing highly skilled workers from its colleges. VETA's determination is imparting high skills to students, so that they can be self-reliant after completing studies.
