Zambia to Host Key Education Conference  

Zambia is set to take center stage in African education as it prepares to host the prestigious 11th Africa Federation of Teaching Regulatory Authorities (AFTRA) Conference. 

The event, scheduled for May 6th to 11th, 2024, at the Mulungushi International Conference Center in Lusaka, will see participation from over 12 African countries. 

The conference theme, “The Teachers We Need for the Education We Want: Agenda Setting for the African Union Education Year 2024,” underscores the critical role of qualified and dedicated teachers in shaping a brighter future for Africa. 

This event offers a valuable platform for educators, education administrators, researchers, development partners, and other stakeholders across the education sector. 

Participants will have the opportunity to share best practices, discuss challenges, and work together to develop strategies for improving education across the continent. 

With President Hakainde Hichilema expected to attend as the guest of honor, Zambia’s commitment to educational advancement is on full display.  

The conference will also serve as a great opportunity for Zambia to showcase its own academic system and achievements. 

Beyond showcasing its own strengths, Zambia stands to benefit greatly from the knowledge and experiences of other participating nations.

The exchange of ideas and collaborative discussions will provide valuable lessons that can be adapted and implemented to further improve Zambia’s own educational practices. 

The conference will ensure broad representation with participation from all ten Zambian provinces and all 116 districts. This commitment to inclusivity ensures that the knowledge gleaned from the conference can be disseminated and implemented throughout the entire country.
