The Higher and Tertiary Education, Innovation, Science and Technology Development ministry says the adoption of Education 5.0 has changed the face of the higher and tertiary education.
Higher and Tertiary Education Minister Professor Amon Murwira said the new education system demands that the country’s higher and tertiary education sector also innovates & industrializes the country.
He said under the new system Innovation hubs and industrial parks are converting academic knowledge into products.
Government in 2017 adopted Education 5.0 which focuses on innovation and industrialisation. Universities and colleges’ response to the outbreak of Covid-19 has confirmed that these institutions are now producing graduates that are not only relevant to industry but that can contribute meaningfully to national development
