Government wants to implement technical education from the 8th grade in the academic year 2018/2019


Praia, March 29  (Inforpress) – The Ministry of Education is working to redefine the operation and training offerings of technical education so that in the academic year 2018/2019 this option can be implemented from the 8th grade.

The guarantee was given by the National Director of Education, Adriana Mendonca, during her speech at the opening of the 1st national meeting of teachers and counselors of secondary schools in the country, which will take place from March 29 to 31, in Praia City.

She said that one of the challenges in education is to make technical education an option from the 8th grade, but stressed that it will be necessary to consolidate the entire organization related to this change supported by vocational guidance.

“This means that we have an increased role in the orientation, that is, to work so that when the students finish the 7th grade they have all the necessary information about the training offers, options and advantages of technical education,” she added, so the idea is for students to have a clear idea of ​​what path they should follow.
