The youth from Blantyre will be amongst those to benefit from the just ended two weeks TEVETA television production training.
The training, held at Blantyre City Council civic offices, aimed at decreasing the high youth unemployment rate in the city.
One of the learners, Aaron Kampweka said the training has come at the right time when they had nothing to do at home ever since they finished their secondary school education.
“I would like to thank TEVETA for the great opportunity of television production training. Most of us had nothing to do at home ever since we finished our secondary school and I must say life was hard but after this training, we are now sure things will never be the same again,” he said.
However, one of the facilitators Saulos Thindwa has asked Teveta to consider providing refresher courses to the students to upgrade the students’ knowledge on the course by organising regular trainings.
“May I take this opportunity to ask Teveta to help in upgrading the knowledge of the students by letting them have regular trainings on the same,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of the Blantyre City Council chief executive officer, the Council’s Administration Officer Andrian Mpinganjira commended Teveta for the opportunity offered to the Blantyre youth.
He asked Teveta to continue providing its training services to the youth.
The graduates have been awarded certificates which will enable them find any job in the television industry which will help in boosting it up.
