      • English for tertiary level syllabi have not satisfied many employers.
      • Comment from Magazine “Economia e Finanças” (Economy and Finances) of November 2009:
      • “ A grande preocupação está nos recursos humanos que parece não estar bem capacitados”.
      • “ The big concern lies in the human ressources that do not seem to have the right abilities”.
      • (From comment)Gap in the educational system.
      • In Angola
      • English not taught at tertial level.Most public
      • tertialy level institutes do not teach English.

      • Collaborarative contract should include cooperative activities or things that follow:
      • Probation :Tertiary level institutes should often send students to their future employers for job training to better understand the business and pick up the needed language.
      • Guestspeaker programmes : company reps will usually visit tertiary level institutes in order to talk about the company.These talks will help students to get a better picture of the company requirements and strive to meet them.
      • Students’ planned visits to company facilities or premises (Libraries, labs, plants etc.) help them to get, learn or familiarise with the concepts or language needed before they graduate.
      • Companies can also encourage and sponsor/finance language research projects.These projects should be related to what companies do. ( Hall, Link & Scott, J.T. 2000,2001)
      • Companies should provide tertiary level institutes with the specific materials /tools in order to promote ELT (Offers ,e.g:BP-AMOCO, CHEVRON)
      • They should also support change/innovation even if the government fail to do so. (Explain)
