The evolution of the College has been characterized by a constant drive to provide an opportunity for students to obtain professional and vocational education and training, allow them to possess a myriad of skills that are relevant for industry through its full-time courses and part-time courses.  With the next cycle of development approaching, which will cover the years 2019 to 2021, the administration at the College, has an opportunity to revisit the positive developments and challenging aspects as a results of the reforms implemented at the College.  ​
