4. National Entrepreneurship Training Guide

As expressed in the 1967 Education for Self-Reliance Policy and Vision 2025, the existing education system needs to be better aligned to the changing environment. Graduates must acquire “employability skills” for both self-employment and salaried employment in a range of organizations, both small and large.  They must be mentally prepared and possess the necessary skills to: (i) take ownership and leadership of their learning and development, (ii) be able to start with whatever they have, even with very little, (iii) work to learn and (iv) get their hands dirty.

Various  measures  have  been  undertaken  to  implement  these  policies.  The  effective  implementation  of  the Education for Self-Reliance Policy in the school system required a substantial change in the mindset of the various actors in the education system, a determined leadership to follow through implementation and a detailed framework for all important actors to speak one language. The mindset, in particular, never changed sufficiently to embrace the spirit of the policy and thus contributed to the policy’s failure to bear the intended results
