About Course

In 2005, the Zimbabwean government through the Ministry of Education Sports and Culture made a policy pronouncement that directed all primary schools to at least attach two ECD classes (A and B) at every primary school however, it was noted that the subsector lacked the necessary compliment of trained teachers to respond to the sudden demand for teachers created by the policy pronouncement. It is under this policy framework that our Institute becomes a partnering training ECD courses aiming to equip this group with the required skills. Executive Skills College adopted the eight module topics which are derived from ECD hand book for trainers to cover all topics of the syllabus.

Great clarity in explanations and thoroughly enjoyed the course. I had been working out for quite a while, but a few little things we might miss out from a diet perspective are covered well in detail here.
Especially loved how you structured the entire focus area of dieting into most important ones to lesser ones.
