VTA has its special characters. We offer high quality technical and vocational education through National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) standards to generate a globally competitive, industry-specific, quality workforce that drives our country towards a glorious future. Further, we train youth to develop skills, knowledge, wisdom, and leadership and we contribute to shun traditions and positive thinking by making disciplines of students. We also provide competencies and skills through diligence and knowledge of ICT, languages, entrepreneur skills, and people skills. That is what we believe in that "the greater we can make, the greater its contribution to the well-being of the world you and I live". So, we invite you to become students of VTA.
