Last year in December, when introducing the VIT COVID Bursary, a historic event in partnership with APTC aimed to address students financially as they proceed towards their educational goals, especially within this COVID-19 crisis, Mr Evans stated that VIT will be offering 14 — 20 programs including, Certificate IV in Accounting/Finance, Certificate IV in Building and Construction and hopefully Certificate IV in Information and Communications Technology.
“This year we hope students will notice the changes in their classes. VIT is still going through a new phase,” he said.
Principal Evans said VIT aims to be the center of excellence for TVET and is focusing on training industries as well this year onwards.
