PIC: Some of the students during training
Polytechnic students who reside in Blantyre and surrounding areas, today flocked to the Polytechnic main campus to attend the Emergency Remote Teaching and Learning training which Management has put in place as an alternative mode of delivery due to the Corona Virus pandemic.

Due to the press release which circulated a few days ago to inform Polytechnic students about this training, the college had arranged five places ready for the estimated number of students which was at 750.

 While observing the COVID 19 measures it was discovered that the students who showed up exceeded the expected number which reached over 1000 hence forced management to organize another venue.

The Vice Principal Dr Nancy Chitera expressed her gratitude on the turn up. She added that this should also encourage students in the other districts to come in large numbers so that they should be trained on the program in their respective places.
