About the centre

Pinetown ICT Centre is located in the central area of Durban, Umbilo. The centre is located in the Dokkies building, which it shares with various other sub-directorates.

There is a computer room with 16 desktops, which we use as an Internet Café; and training venue, and a training room, which has 15 desktops, that we use for training and also as meeting venue. The training room has an Interactive white board and projector. The centre also has a laptop trolley with 22 laptops that we use on an ad hoc basis.

As the centre is located in the central parts of Durban, but is part of Pinetown District in the Department of Education, it services the whole Greater Durban area, and being in a central location we get a lot of traffic of people looking for Internet usage, photocopying, scanning and such which we offer to all our patrons.

For the general public we also offer basic computer skills training. The centre is also a CISCO Academy, as well as a Microsoft IT Academy, so we do take students for IT Essentials as well.

Of course teacher training is our main focus at the centre and as such we have training sessions at the centre for teachers by Microsoft, SchoolNet, IT Master and other Vodacom partners, as well directorates of the Department of Education. These workshops train educators, and education managers on the use of ICT as a teaching tool, ICT as a way to become a paperless district and province, e-books, e-learning, and such things.
