Authorities at Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) have announced intentions to aggressively drive the country’s human capital development.
The pronouncement comes ahead of the annual marathon Botswana Human Resource Development Skills Fair and Career Clinics (BHRDS) events slated for March in Francistown, Maun and Gaborone.
Raphel Dingalo, HRDC Chief Executive Officer on Wednesday said the Council is using BHRDS Fairs and Clinics to establish link between demand and supply, citing that growth of the event is indication of success in HRDC’s endeavors.
“We believe the career fairs and clinics help individuals acquire knowledge, and explore alternatives,” said Dr. Dingalo, adding that BHRDS takes students through the labour market changes. “In addition, improve self-esteem and motivation of students seeking career opportunities,” Dr. Dingalo said. He said HRDC is key component of driving the national human resource strategy. This year, BHRDS Fairs and Clinics celebrate 10 years of reinforcing and bring into reality of career guidance offered at schools. HRDC also plans to introduce online registration for visitors during the fairs and clinics, as part of efforts to improve HRDC’s data collection
