Deputy Executive Director in the Ministry of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Dr. Raimo Naanda has urged Namibian corporate companies to join the call of absorbing students seeking internship programmes to complete their studies. Naanda bemoaned that fact that employers do not seem to be interested in training, saying currently the country has over 2 800 employers with an annual payroll of N$1 million contributing one per cent to the National Training Authority VET levy monthly, however only about 80 are participating in upskilling and training students. This he said, despite the benefit of employers who participate being able to claim up to 50 per cent of their training cost.
