Students undergoing different technical and skills trainings under the Technical, Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training (TEVET) apprenticeship program have expressed dissatisfaction with how the body is discharging duties.
In an interview, a member of the TEVET Apprentices Union of Malawi said that TEVET is delaying to release December 2018 examination results which were supposed to be out before June this year and the same students are now forced to pay for this yearâs exams.
He added that the board is also failing to provide tool boxes to students from 2017, 2018 and 2019 intakes.
âThe board is not offering certificates to successful students who have completed levels or even whole training. Most students are failing to access attachment places when it comes to industrial period. TEVET is not showing interest in helping these students,â said the student.
He added that the issues have been delivered to the authorities but nothing is happening and most students are quitting studies.
âWe have been talking to them but they always say âwe are working on that.Most of the students are dropping out of school and most of them are losing hope with the board,â the student said.
TEVETA has been helpingÂ needy students in Malawi forÂ quite a long time.
