About LTBC

 

Luanshya Technical and Business College Management Board was opened in 1958 to provide education to Miner’s children. In 1968, the government took over running of the Institute from the mining company and converted it to Zambia Institute of Technology (ZIT), Lusemfwa campus. Following the 1972 Technical Education Act, the institution was given the name of Luanshya Trades Training Institute, (LTTI). At that time, the institute only offered engineering and secretarial courses.

In the 1990s, the government embarked on a reform programme for the Technical Education Vocational and Training. As a result of these reforms, in 1996 government issued a policy on Technical Education Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training (TEVET) and enacted the TEVET Act No. 13 of 1998, which provided for establishment of Management Boards in training institution. The Institute started running as an autonomous management board in 2000.

The mandate of the Management Board according to part III of the TEVET Act No. 13 of 1998 are:

· Provide training in technical education, vocational and entrepreneurship training;

· Develop curricula for the institution;

· Ensure that standards prescribed by the Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA) are maintained by the institution;

· Provide training for the staff of the institution;

· Administer the affairs of the institution;

· Subject of approval by the Minister, charge and collect fees for tuition, boarding and other service provided by the institution; and

· Do all such things as the management board may consider necessary to promote technical education, vocational and entrepreneurship training.

The Institution continued offering Engineering and Secretarial courses until late 1999 when Business courses were introduced. This prompted the Board to change the name for the Institute from Luanshya Trades Training Institute to Luanshya Technical and Business College Management Board in 2006.

The College is managed by a Management Board, whose members are appointed by the Minister of Science, Technology and Vocational Training. The Board is responsible for policy formulation and employment of staff.
