  • Minister of State for Economic Coordination, Manuel Nunes Júnior
Luanda - The Minister of State for Economic Coordination, Manuel Nunes Junior, today in Luanda encouraged the structuring of the training pyramid in the country, in response to the need for well qualified professionals.

The government official expressed this desire at a press conference, at the end of a meeting with a delegation from the European Union (EU), in the scope of the Implementation of the National Programme for Staff Training (PNFQ) and the goals of the National Development Plan (PDN 2018-2022).

According to Manuel Nunes Junior, the country needs graduates, masters and doctors, but it needs much more well qualified technicians, capable of competently performing a given professional task, without necessarily having higher education.

"For this reason, we are working with the EU, in the area of technical-vocational education, to guarantee a better quality of labour and to guarantee higher levels of employability of young people (....)," he stressed.

In this way, he added, actions are being implemented to improve the technical and pedagogical training of teachers, trainers and managers of technical-vocational education schools and vocational training centres.

The quality and relevance of the curricula and qualifications provided by technical-vocational education schools and professional training centres are also being improved, based on the needs of the national economy.
