PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
HEA DEREGISTERS GREENLIGHT UNIVERSITY
Mr. Birbal Boniface Musoba
Corporate Communications Officer
HIGHER EDUCATION AUTHORITY
28th January, 2021
The Higher Education Authority (HEA) has forthwith deregistered Greenlight University, Registration No. HEA/013, from operating as a Higher Education Institution (HEI) within the Republic of Zambia. The Authority has done this in accordance with the provisions of the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013 Part IV: Section 23 (1) (b), which state that the Authority shall deregister a private HEI if it contravenes any term or condition of the certificate of registration or any provision of this Act.
Greenlight University was deregistered on 18th December, 2020, following an Extraordinary Board of the Authority Meeting and its deregistration was gazetted in Gazette Notice No. 28 of 2020, which was published on Friday, 8th January, 2021.
The institution was deregistered on the following grounds:
1) The institution was in breach of the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013 Section 20 (b) as it had inadequate and unsuitable teaching and learning facilities for residential classes and library services. Further, the premises used for residential classes were neither approved nor registered by the Authority as required by the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013 Section 21(2).
2) The institution failed to provide complete student records, including student assessment results for students who graduated on 22nd December, 2018, for the purposes of assessing whether learning took place and how students were assessed. The institution was, thus, in breach of the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013 Section 12 (2) which states that an HEI shall submit data on the enrolment, records of achievements and award of learners to the Authority at such intervals and in such manner as the Authority may determine.
3) By graduating students in unaccredited Learning Programmes (LPs), the institution was in breach of Statutory Instrument No. 25 of 2016 Part III Paragraph 10 (1) which states that the proprietor of an HEI shall not offer LPs for which it is not accredited.
HEA continues to warn the general public to not enrol at any private institution that is not registered with the Authority or in any LP from both private and public HEIs that is not accredited as their qualifications will not be recognised.
HEA will continue its sustained efforts in Ensuring Quality in Higher Education by vigorously conducting compliance audits of HEIs so that the provision of higher education in Zambia fulfils the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP) of “Enhancing Human Development” in order to produce internationally recognised graduates.

Aligning Curriculum Development to Industry Needs
ZAQA has continued the quest to bridge the gap between graduates and industry needs. The Permanent Secretary (PS) for the Ministry of Higher Education Mrs. Kayula Siame officiated at the Validation workshop of the National Occupational Standards for the Manufacturing sector held in Lusaka.
In her remarks, the PS emphasised that manufacturing sector is one of the key priority sectors that have been identified in the Seventh National Development Plan as having tremendous potential to contribute to national economic development.
Mrs. Siame further highlighted that the development of National Occupational Standards cannot have come at a better time than this, as Government is aware of the concerns from industry concerning the mismatch between job performance requirements and skills development that exists in the Manufacturing sector. Therefore, the Government of the Republic of Zambia stands ready to promote and support interventions aimed at enhancing the quality of education and training as well as promoting industry driven skills development for the betterment of the economy. The quality of education and training is a key prerequisite to a robust and sustainable economic development.
PS Kayula alluded that the Standards that will be validated would be critical to the operational efficiency and productivity of the workforce in the Manufacturing sector in that they give precise descriptions of what an individual is expected to be able to do in his/her work role by specifying the sphere of knowledge, skills and autonomy levels that individuals should attain for effective performance in a specific job. The standards being validated are : Chemical Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Electrical and Electronics Engineer, Production Manager, Quality Controller and Workshop Machines Operator.
In her concluding remarks, Mrs Kayula stated that it is of utmost importance that the private sector and captains of industry were present, and that they should continue to play a prominent role in the development and implementation of National Occupational Standards. She therefore encouraged all organisations in the Manufacturing sector to ensure that the NOS being validated will be implemented.

ZAQA NOS workshop for construction and mining sectors in Kitwe
A key to Improving the mismatch between skills training and labour market needs – National Occupational Standards
His Worship the Mayor of the City of Kitwe – Eng Christopher Kang’ombe officiated at the ZAQA workshop on the development and validation of National Occupational Standards (NOS). The workshop was organised to develop NOS in the mining sector for six (6) occupations namely, mine sampler, ore processing operator, mine safety officer, mining blaster, winding engine operator and mine data entry operator. Further, the experts will validate NOS developed in the construction sector for six (6) occupations namely: electrician – low voltage, general bricklayer, draughts person, land surveyor, metal fabricator and steel fixer.
In his remarks Mr. Kang’ombe emphasised that quality education and training is a key prerequisite to robust and sustainable economic development as an educated population provides the type of labour force necessary for industrial development.
He commended the Authority for fulfilling their mandate to develop National Occupational Standards that resonates well with the government’s policy of ensuring availability of skilled workforce across the various sectors of the economy as espoused in the seventh National Development Plan.
His Worship further highlighted the important role that national occupational standards (NOS) play in skills development and therefore cannot be downplayed as they are used globally in the development of curricula and learning programmes, which leads to recognisable and internationally comparable qualifications.
Occupational standards prescribe what an individual needs to do and know for them to be able to perform their duties effectively and efficiently in their place of work. As a result, development of these standards will ensure that curricula and learning programmes are tailored to meet the aspirations of industry.
In addition, he alluded that employers in the mining and construction sectors to enhance capacity of their workers through in-house training programs will use the NOS that will be developed and validated.
The Mayor was happy to note that the Embassy of Ireland in Zambia has been supporting the Authority in various activities one of which was the development of national occupational standards that we are witnessing today.
As he concluded, he urged all organisations in the aforementioned sectors to support and work closely with ZAQA in the development and implementation of National Occupational Standards.
