During the meeting Ms Chama accompanied by Mr Robert Lukwesa the HR and Administration Manager disclosed that Lusaka Vocational and Technical Training College was established in 1997 by the Zambian government with support from the Japanese government to provide knowledge and skills to the youths who could not complete school and that the institution has since over the years graduated into a college providing ten vocational and technical programs. Ms Chama observed that there is a great opportunity of Camco College and Lusaka Vocational and Technical Training College working together for the benefit of the students, she said that much as her institution is stronger on theoretical part, such can be complemented Camco College’s solid base of wide range of machinery and equipment that can be handy in practicals.
The Industrial Training Centre (ITC) Executive Director Mr Llyod Mbasela in his briefing said the centre was established in 1986 through a government to government agreement between the Republic of Zambia and the Federal Republic of Germany. Mr Mbasela said the objective in establishing the ITC was to develop hands-on, dedicated craftsmen for the Zambian manufacturing, transport and service industries; thus far ITC “is answering to the demands of the clients, filling up the skills gap on the market” Mr Mbasela. Mr Mbasela who was accompanied by the Training Manager Mr Albert Banda said a window of collaboration existed between Camco College and ITC and requested that team members from the two institutions work on a concept paper to spell out the level of cooperation.
Mr. Li Tie, thanked on separate meetings the two institutions and looked forward to sound working relationships that shall be of benefit to not only training institutions but the learners who are in search of knowledge and skills being offered by the three colleges.
