currently implementing a programme for the integration of Information Communication
Technology (ICT) in Education. The programme has made significant impact in the

introduced ICT as a subsidiary subject at the Advanced Level of Education in
preparation of the youth into attaining the vital ICT skills before joining universities
and/or tertiary institutions. Before that, computer education was mainly done
in urban schools and computer studies as a subject stopped in S.4 (UCE). Others
had to train in private computer centres, scattered in many towns and the
training was largely substandard.
