Summary

The 1963 population of malawi was 3,753,000. Malawi's economy is based on agriculture. Primary education covers 8 years and enrolls 98 percent of the 380,000 pupils in school. Technical schools include trade- and technician-oriented programs under the ministry of education. A new University of malawi includes no courses of a technical nature, but a polytechnic at blantyre includes courses in building and engineering, motor vehicle mechanics, electrical technician work, printing, carpentry, joinery, brickwork, fitting, turning, and day release city and guilds courses. There are two government trade schools. Secondary technical teachers are being trained in a pilot program, but a lack of qualified applicants for teacher education is a major difficulty. Legislation has been introduced to provide an apprenticeship program which plans to train in 22 trades. Gradual on-the-job upgrading is common, but no deliberate government effort has yet been made to promote this activity. Planning for vocational training to increase and improve the supply of trained personnel include developing the malawi polytechnic, government trade schools, and an apprenticeship program. (jm)
