17 New Qualifications Accredited by NQA

14 new degrees plus 3 Certificates level 1, 2 and 3 approved-International Training College Lingua (ITCL)

On Wednesday 27th November 2019, we woke up to the great news that Namibia Qualifications Authority (NQA) had approved 14 new degrees plus three certificates to be offered by International Training College Lingua (ITCL) with effect from January 2020:

  1. Seven Bachelor’s degrees level 7
  2. Seven Honour’s degrees level 8
  3. Certificates in Travel and Tourism – Level 1,2 and 3

The International Training College – Lingua community i.e. Students, Employers, Advisory Board, Management and Staff was excited that the government through the Namibia Qualifications Authority (NQA) had approved that the College offers these degrees and certificates with effect from January 2020. This was after a rigorous consultative and quality check processes were carried out involving all stakeholders on the relevance of these programs in the economy now and in the future.

Most importantly was the role played by employers who on numerous occasions, sat down to review the curriculum ensuring that it addresses specific needs in industry and commerce thereby, giving assurance that a graduate of these courses from International Training College Lingua would be fit for purpose in the job market. The College has always ensured that all its programs are demand driven and that they undergo a thorough quality assurance process which guarantees a final product (graduate) who is competent and well-grounded to add value to their employers. Our delivery methods have been re-modelled to incorporate more industrial exposure through company visits and eventually job attachments in the terminal year.

 

As a College, we are obviously enthused by this development and are looking forward to offering our customers exceptionally high quality service that has now become synonymous with the ITCL Brand. We have designed some generous discount packages targeted to all former ITCL students as a thank you gesture for the support that they have given us over the years. New students also stand to enjoy some never to be repeated specials coming with this maiden introduction of degrees at ITCL.  We take this opportunity to sincerely thank all our stakeholders whom we believe are all happy for having achieved this feat, for having worked tirelessly throughout this process.
