On September 19, the ministry announced that two committees have been put in place to assess the feasibility of the proposal and report back before the end of November.

It will be the end of an era for state-run colleges which have been in the game for close to a century.

Once started, the ministry will also urge churches to put their teacher training institutions under a similar overhaul.

“Two committees have been put in place to provide a comprehensive policy advisory and consultancy service to the ministry,” Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development permanent secretary Dr Machivenyika Mapuranga said on Monday.

“For teachers colleges, a foundation committee will look into the transformation of all teachers colleges into a university of education with Mkoba Teachers College as the main university campus with a special mandate on teacher education.

“For polytechnics, a steering committee will make recommendations into whether polytechnics can be turned into degree-awarding institutions or can be standalone or can be one institution with eight campuses and propose a process for the transformation,” revealed the permanent secretary.
