About us

The Technical and Vocational Teacher's College (TVTC) was established in July 1975 to provide Vocational Teacher Education in order to service training institutions under the then Department of Technical Education and Vocational Training in the Ministry of Science, Technology and Vocational Training.

In January 2000 TVTC was established as a management board through the Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Act No 13 of 1998. The College is an affiliate of the University of Zambia (UNZA) and Copperbelt University (CBU); all College diplomas programmes are underwritten by University of Zambia (UNZA). While all degree programmes are underwritten by the Copperbelt University (CBU).

The College offers programmes on Full Time, Open and Distance Learning and Short Courses. With the introduction of ICT curriculum in primary and secondary schools, TVTC has responded to the needs of both teachers and the Ministry of General Education by introducing a Diploma in ICT for Teachers. Other new programmes which have been introduced are Diploma in Mathematics and Physics, Diploma in Mathematic and Chemistry and English, Civic Education with Counselling.

The immediate challenge was to transform the College from a public institution to a self- sustaining training entity. To this effect the College has undergone a radical internal restructuring intended to improve the delivery of training and services. As part of this strategy, the College has also implemented vigorous staff development plan targeting all levels of its staff. Since its establishment in 1975, TVTC has made significant contribution in the area of Human Resources and Management development in the region. Its role as a premier regional training College has expanded substantially as a result of increased client demands by institutions and organisations both within the country and in the region.

In December 2010, Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) and TVTC signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the delivery of EDI’s Diploma in Entrepreneurship and Business Management, (DEBM).

On September 2nd, 2011 TVTC signed an Memorandum of Understanding with Copperbelt University in order for TVTC to offer degree programmes under the Copperbelt University. The first cohort of degree students were enrolled on 4th March, 2013.
