Botswana: Programme to Benefit Tourism Sector


Maun — Permanent secretary in the Ministry of Basic Education, Ms Bridget John, says introduction of a multiple pathways programme at Maun Senior Secondary School will benefit the business community.

She said this after touring construction of the hospitality and tourism facility at the school on Monday.

The facility comprises a six rooms mini hotel, which is expected to offer practicals on hospitality and tourism subjects to the first batch of the Form 4s.

Ms John said the new programme aimed at transforming the education system to benefit the business community especially the tourism sector

The multiple pathway approach, she said, would focus on strengthening skills development and improving quality, relevance and access to education.

“This programme is relevant as it will shape the future of our pupils once they complete their studies. Pupils will be more into practical work and those who fail academically to secure slots at tertiary institutions will be able to apply their skills to earn a living,” she added.

The permanent secretary also stated that the multiple pathway approach would be piloted at Maun Senior Secondary school and Moeng College.

Moeng would offer crop production skills.
