dc.description.abstractThe challenges we face as a nation arc to define and determine the kind of skills and HF the nation needs in our process of education and training, right through life. Today, Zimbabwe and other African countries face multi-dimensional problems of scarcity, redundancy, surplus and having to employ newly introduced skills. We also face the challenge of assessing performance in terms of relevance, suitability, effectiveness and efficiency of the HF product from our education system, in the light of the social and economic problems we face. We also have challenges related to social vices such as violence, corruption, fraud, decadence, drunkenness and laziness. Many African countries have regressed instead of progressing because of their neglect to develop an appropriate HF centred education with checks and balances to guard against socio-economic and political decay.en
