Minister says ordinary level certificate holders can enroll for diploma programmes

State Minister for Primary Education, Rosemary Seninde

The State Minister for Primary Education, Rosemary Seninde, has equated a two year certificate at ordinary level to an advanced level certificate saying this makes one eligible to enroll for a diploma.

She made the remarks while explaining to MPs government’s decision to scrap off one year certificate courses.

Last month the national council for higher education ordered all institutions of higher learning to stop teaching one year certificate courses arguing that these were contravening with guidelines of national council of higher education.

Seninde further explained that the national council for higher education realized that these one year certificates could not be used by anyone to upgrade for higher studies and that’s why it was scrapped.

She however, says that this will not affect tailor made courses that are geared towards empowering people with skills.
