The ZIMTA 32nd Annual National Conference has kicked off in Victoria Falls, with a number of educators from across Zimbabwe’s ten regions attending the conference. This year’s theme is enhancing the teacher’s status through economic empowerment.


Created 22 April 2013

The ZIMTA conference is being held on the backdrop ofthe existence of    poor working conditions for civil servants, where the largest portion of  the number consists of teachers. Teachers   continue to earn  salaries below the poverty datum line in an environment where the cost of living continues to escalate.


Delegates attending the   ZIMTA 32nd Annual National Conference have expressed hope that after the conference, they would  find solutions to end the perpetual poverty that has been forced amongst themthrough   low salaries and worsening  conditions of service where even promotions of civil servants have been stopped by the employer.


Economic empowerment  discussions and ideas on how to empower the group of professionals known as teachers in Zimbabwe  will dominate the proceedings for the entire duration of the conference which is expected to run from the 22nd to the 24th of April 2013.


A total of  250 delegates consisting of educators,university  professors and   Unions from the   Southern African DevelopmentCommunity (SADC) member countries and the business community in Zimbabwe are attending the conference in Victoria Falls.
