ENTEBBE -Uganda People’s Defence Air Forces (UPDAF) on Sunday 16 advised learners to choose subjects that will help them prosper in future.
Maj. Edward Birungi who represented Brigadier Richard Karemire, the spokesperson of UPDAF advised the learners that they should concentrate on science subjects if they are considering a career in either police or the UPDAF force.
While at Mapeera S.S Kisubi, Maj. Birungi asserted that this system of career guidance is given to students with an aim of inspiring and informing them that if they want to join police and UPDAF, they must have passed Mathematics and English with very good aggregates.
The Commissioner of the Vocational Institute in the Ministry of Education, Mr. James Mugerwa said that that it’s not a must that all learners should go up to University, he encouraged them to consider joining vocational Institutions as alternatives for hands-on-training.
Nakitende Harriet, the Director of Studies at Kisubi Secondary School, said that that this exhibition is organized annually.
The annual event hosts different people with an aim of providing learners and young people with career guidance.
Schools in Uganda started to implement hand-work in their curriculum to enable learners acquire relevant skills that they can rely on in the absence of white-collar office jobs.
This event is also intended to help curb the rampant unemployment rates in Uganda’s economy.
