Computer Training

OUR VISION  is to provide communities, and other clients including adults and youth, with accredited and affordable ICT skills to meet the demands of the technology-driven economy.

ITEC’S CHILD-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY WORK is partly funded by income generated  by our ICT Courses.  When you enrol on an ITEC course, not  only do you develop your computer skills, but your fees contribute to the wellbeing of children and families.
