The first two grade ten vocational classes at Chipata Trades Training Institute are supposed to begin this second term.
College Principal Miriam Mwale says that the institute is targeting 80 pupils.
Ms. Mwale indicated that the pupils were behind by one term and that the training institute would introduce lessons during holidays to catch up.
She explained that the trades institute delayed to introduce the classes because they did not have resources.
The morning sessions will be dedicated towards the vocational courses, while the afternoon sessions will be for the academic session.
And Provincial Education Officer, Thomas Mwanza says that some teachers from other secondary schools in Chipata will be selected to help with the afternoon sessions.
