In a quest to clear the confusion among stakeholders between the names ‘TEVET’ as a system and ‘TEVETA’ as an Authority, the Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training (TEVET) Authority has modified its logo.

The recently held training in producing briquettes from rice husks is a step towards an environmentally friendly Malawi as it will provide a form of waste management for large piles of rice husks improperly disposed of in the lake shore district of Karonga.

TEVETA’s Head of Regulatory and Compliance Services Mr. Charles Mataya-Phiri said this Friday in Karonga at the closure of a training in briquette making. The training was part of TEVETA’s objective of supporting the adoption of appropriate technologies as laid out in its 2013-2018 Strategic Plan.

As the world is going through a period of rapid change driven by Technology, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Sector has been at the centre of this change. TEVETA is responding to these changes by introducing an IT Course in the TEVET Curriculum. Declan Somers, Marketing Manager at John Paul II Leadership and IT Institute writes on this development.
