A short history of Shakaland Technical College (PTY) LTD
After our contract expired as lecturers at an FET College, We got together and decided to open a private technical college in the area of Kwa Dukuza. Several meetings were held to establish the new college. It took two years of intensive and thorough planning and organizing to bring our new college to fruition. It was decided that the name of the college will be Shakaland Technical College (PTY) LTD. Later we managed to lease a premises at 72 Colenbrander Street, Kwa Dukuza to be used as Shakaland Technical College. The college opened its premise in 2017 to cater for Business and Engineering studies. Most of our learners travel from Kwa Dukuza and surrounding areas to the campus where we are lecturing. We felt that there was a dire need for another technical college in Kwa Dukuza. Also all six of us are lecturers and have been teaching/ lecturing for a number of years. We have the knowledge and didactics in the various subjects. At Shakaland Technical College, we strive to empower and enrich our learners through life long education, training and skills development, in pursuit of our mission, all learners are offered the highest standard of quality, tutoring, support and assistance ensuring that they are equipped, guided, motivated and afforded the opportunity to reach their full potential.
