Curriculum overhaul to be completed by November

University of Namibia (UNAM) Vice-Chancellor Kenneth Matengu has announced that a major curriculum transformation process of the university is due for completion by November this year, writes Albertina Nakale for New Era.

When Matengu took over office in 2018, he undertook to review the curriculum in a bid to ensure graduates are employable in a selective and demanding job market. Providing an update recently, Matengu urged university staff to take ownership of the education they produce. “We want a university that’s robust and resilient,” he emphasised.

A six-person team was tasked to re-examine the restructuring report and find the best way forward for the institution in the context of the current economic situation, but also taking into account global trends in structures and operations of academic institutions. Matengu was quick to clarify that no UNAM employee would lose their job due to the new curriculum transformation exercise.
