    Background: IN NDOLA, AT THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE ZAMBIAN POSTAL SERVICES, TRAINING IS BEING INCREASED TO DEVELOP THE STRENGTH OF THE NATION'S POSTAL CORPS.

    THE TRAINING STARTED AS A TELEPHONISTS' SCHOOL OF THE POSTAL ADMINISTRATION SOON AFTER INDEPENDENCE IN 1964. TODAY, IT EXTENDS TO ALL POSTAL WORK.

    IN DECEMBER A POSTAL SECTION WAS OPENED. THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY A TELECOMMUNICATIONS' BRANCH IN FEBRUARY. IN APRIL AN ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT WAS FORMED, SO THAT NOW ZAMBIANS CAN BE TRAINED FOR MANY JOBS THAT HITHERTO WERE DONE BY EXPATRIATES.

    THE BRITISH POST OFFICE HAS SECONDED POSTAL INSTRUCTORS TO THE NDOLA SCHOOL TO HELP IN THE TRAINING WORK.
