THE Government is set to train more indigenous languages and science teachers under its teacher Capacity Development Programme. 

In a statement, Primary and Secondary Education Permanent Secretary Tumisang Thabela said eligible candidates should have teaching qualifications and experience.

She added that the Education Ministry may give special consideration to those who do not meet some of the needed requirements, but are eligible for the programmes. 

This comes as Government has since crafted principles of the languages bill, which seek to safeguard the country’s 16 official languages in fulfilment of section 6 of the Constitution meant to promote multilingualism.

The Principles of the Languages Bill were adopted in 2021.
