Catholic Church to build TTC


Mzuzu Diocese of the Catholic Church has disclosed plans to build a teachers training college (TTC) to meet a growing demand of teachers in the country.

Bishop John Ryan of the diocese said the church is committed to promoting education in the country; hence, embarking on the project.

Ryan made the sentiments during a teachers’ training closing ceremony for 124 students that the church, through Chancen Dutch Building organization, sponsored at Loudon TTC in Mzimba District.

Bishop Ryan urged the student teachers to take their profession as a calling not just an income generation career.

“Every country needs educated people for its development, which is why the Catholic Church is really committed to supporting education in the country. It is our hope that the TTC will help fill the vacancies,” he said.

In his remarks, Education Division Manager for the Northern Education Division, Mzondi Moyo, commended Mzuzu Diocese for the gesture.

“The population of the country is growing and that is creating a big gap in the education sector, because it means more schools have to be built and more teachers should be employed and the construction of a TTC will really be beneficial,” he said.

The construction of the college is expected to start in 2020.

Mzuzu Diocese has 262 schools in the country.
