Education

There is need for constant engagement between the industry and the tertiary education institutions to help mould the best graduates that would be absorbed by the job-market; delegates at a stakeholders’ meeting at the Polytechnic of Namibia (PoN) last week concurred.
The delegates who met at the hotel school argued that industry and tertiary education institutions could achieve more if they constantly discussed the latest trends in the market.
Vice-rector academic affairs, Dr Andrew Niikondo said, there is need for the industry to keep telling the institutions what type of skills are needed in the industry.
Dean of Health and Sciences, Sylvester Moyo, on his part added, there is a lot of improvement in PoN’s graduates following constant support from the business sector as well as the Government.
“We have seen a lot of support from the Government as well as the industry and this has been really beneficial on our part,” Moyo said at the event.
