Govt, GIZ commends internship programme

Post was last updated: December 3, 2019

GIZ and the government has hailed the impact of the initial internship programme in the oil seed sector, saying it is helping to address skills gap.

The programme, which was funded by GIZ, attracted 101 students from University of Malawi, Mzuzu University and Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Some 14 interns have since secured employment.

Speaking at a skills gap stakeholder workshop in Lilongwe recently, Secretary for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Ken Ndala, thanked partners for success of the programme.

“We expect training institutions to be reviewing content and curricula. The industry should also be able to identify r ight competencies in a systematic and professional manner,” Ndala said.

GIZ Malawi Programme Officer, Andrew Kansungwi, said the German Government has committed to support the second phase of the skills gap project until August 2021.

“There is room for improvement in implementation of the project,” Kansungwi said.
