The Teaching Council of Zambia (TCZ), has closed down 10 Colleges on the Copperbelt which have been operating without licenses.
TCZ Assistant Director Joel Kamoko Said the institutions were shut down following the teaching Progression Act No. 5 of 2013 which states that no institution shall hold out as a college or Provide training activities without the approval and inspection of the teaching Council.
Mr. Kamoko advised students at the college to always ensure that they consult the District Education Board Secretary (Debs) on which colleges are registered before enrolling into any institution.
He said it is sad that some people enroll into institutions without knowing that they will have a hard time in finding employment because the College they attended is unregistered.
