Education 5.0 transforms Nyatsime College

Education 5.0 transforms Nyatsime College

Story by Peter Chivhima

THE heritage-based Education 5.0 philosophy continues to bear fruit in different spheres of the economy with schools also tapping into the initiative and the latest learning institution to embrace education with production is Nyatsime College.

The heritage-based education philosophy is proving to be a game changer in efforts to produce students who are ready to turn around the country’s economy through innovation and industrialisation.

This Saturday, the ZBC News had an opportunity to visit and tour income-generating projects being undertaken by students from Nyatsime College in Chitungwiza.

The projects include cattle fattening, garment making and poultry production, with the students attesting to the benefits of the current education philosophy.

“As students, we are doing a lot of projects which are in line with the Heritage-based education 5.0 model so we are convinced that these skills we are going to use them for the development of our nation,” said one of the students.

Another student added, “We are already developing products here which we are selling and it means that we are already contributing to our school.”

Nyatsime College principal, Dr Shepherd Masaraure and Guest of Honour at an event held at Nyatsime College this Saturday, entrepreneur Dr Divine Ndlukhula underscored the need for schools to embrace the Education 5.0 model.

“Here, we are producing students who are ready to deliver in communities so that they can help to turn around the country’s economy. I understand you have seen all the projects we are doing here, they are also helping us in terms of reducing costs here,” he said.

“All schools are challenged to identify and engage a best-fit position that creates an appropriate, conducive and enabling environment. We must all endeavor to promote and cultivate Sustainable Goal Number 4 on inclusive and equal quality lifelong education. So much time is spent on social media networks and if teachers and pupils could embrace this concept and establish subject-school networks, the performance gap between pupils or between schools would undoubtedly be narrowed. I am pleased that Nyatsime College has been exemplary in addressing the 21st century ICT demands,” said Dr Ndlukhula.

The Second Republic has made deliberate efforts to empower students by ensuring that learners acquire practical skills leading to the production of quality goods and services in fulfillment of the industrialisation agenda.
