    MASVINGO – A total of 34 students have graduated in the Traditional Apprentice Programme (TAP), a scheme that places emphasis on entrepreneurship and survival skills.
    The graduates trained in various practical courses which included hairdressing, dressmaking, motor mechanics, hotel and catering, horticulture, computers and construction.
    The Programme takes one year and the graduation ceremony was at Masvingo Polytechnic where a Chiredzi businessman Edmore Veterai was the guest of honour. The Programme was introduced in 2009 and this was the third group to be capped.
    Speaking at the graduation, Veterai said the second Republic requires skills for industrialization and he encouraged the students to apply the skills for productive use.
    The Programme focuses on the provision of survival skills and competencies to participants.
    The graduation was held under the theme, ‘Training for Sustainable Enterprising and Industrialization.’
    In an interview with The Mirror, Acting Principal Bornface Machuwaire said that everything went well although the expected graduation figure of 60 students dropped to 34. Some students actually paid for their gowns but they did not turn up for the event due to transport costs.
