About the centre

The centre is situated in Mdantsane, a township in East London in Eastern Cape. It is housed at Dr WB Rubusana, the former College of Education operating as a district office. The centre started operations in January 2016.

The centre is part of the East London district which is made up 304 of rural, peri-urban and urban schools. The district serves the East London area of the Buffalo City Metro municipality and the Great Kei municipality. There are 12 circuits, which currently operate as 11 due to a shortage of one circuit manager.
