Construction of a new block of classrooms, workshops and Computer Laboratories was completed at the beginning of this year at the Newcastle Technology Centre Campus at Majuba TVET College to provide more opportunities for new learners choosing the NC(V) career path.
The infrastructure spend for the new building was in the order of R21 million and the amount utilised for the furniture & equipment, networked computer Labs and, other teaching and learning materials and staff facilities was approximately R2 million. This will ensure that the College provides a fully functional facility with the latest teaching and learning media, to deliver an enriching, rewarding and a relevant experience to the NC(V) learners.
Mr. Sanjay Singh, Acting Campus Manager of Newcastle Technology Centre Campus, feels privileged to have been a part of this project. He went on to state that, “Modern facilities improve not only the physical environment of the Campus but also it’s learning culture. The new NC(V) building assists in ensuring improved higher levels of learning. The number of students at the Campus has grown rapidly over the recent few years and accommodating them had become a task of its own. The Management and staff at Newcastle Technology Centre Campus are devoted to developing our students into young men and women of wisdom who are committed to pursuing excellence. Extended, comfortable learning space not only assists us with this task but also provides the much needed room for teaching and learning.”
The new block will accommodate up to 700 students in several NC(V) disciplines. The new building allows students and the faculty to collaborate and engage in advanced teaching methodologies (including e-Learning, and online assessments) providing more opportunities to push the boundaries of educational research.
