Glory Technical College [GTC] says it is aiming at preparing productive and self-reliable Malawian citizens through provision of quality Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education and Training [TEVET] for Malawi workforce in socially responsible manner.
The College which is located at the hub of Dowa boma –WENALA location, is complementing Government efforts towards offering vocational training skills to boys and girls making them busy to run away from early marriages and drug and substance abuse.

Its Executive Director, Winickess Kalukusha, said the College is offering training courses such as Plumbing, Electrical Installation, Refrigeration and Air conditioning mechanics, Bricklaying, Carpentry and Joinery, Tailoring and Design, Painting and Decoration and soap making.

Kalukusha said in 2021, the Collage enrolled 75 students, 64 completed trainings in various professional fields and were awarded with certificates making them ready to be self-employed and employing others in their respective areas.

He said from 2017, the College has been offering trainings to boys and girls coming from poor families, 78 students in total [40 girls and 38 boys] to give equal opportunities saying they are lacking donor support to continue with the initiative.

…..’’With the good work we are doing, we are hopeful that donors would not leave us alone, there support will go towards assisting needy students to be trained in vocational training skills,’’…..said Kalukusha.

However, Kalukusha lamented that many youth from around Dowa boma are not enrolling with the College saying they would have been the first group to enjoy the fruits of the College as a supporting home industry.

He said the College is receiving students from outside Dowa district citing 30 from Dedza alone, 12 from Dowa and three from other districts saying this is an encouragement that there is an impact being registered at the College.
He said applicants to be enrolled with the College must be male or female aged 16 and above, possess at least a Junior Certificate of Education [JC] Certificate with a pass in English, Mathematics and Physical Science saying those with MSCE Certificates have an added advantage.

The Director said interested applicants are required to complete the application form with a payment fee of K2000 which is non-fundable, advising all interested applicants that the first Semester opens on 4th April, 2022.
