She expressed her happiness on their appointment and assured the ambassadors that CHE has full support of the Ministry of Education and Training in delivering its mandate. Thus, the ambassadors also will get all the necessary support. Chairperson of Council on his part pointed to the importance of the higher education system being geared towards producing graduates who can predominantly provide employment instead of being job seekers. The Chief Executive of CHE Dr. Ntoi outlined the mandate of CHE to the ambassadors indicating that CHE is charged with the responsibility to accredit programmes offered by Higher Education Institutions, and to manage implementation of the Lesotho Qualifications Framework (LQF) among others.

Following the official launch, by the Honourable Minister, the ambassadors were inducted for two days on how CHE works and their expected role towards supporting it to achieve its mandate. Now that they have been fully inducted, they will be engaged in different work assignments immediately over the next two years.
