About the centre

The Vhembe District Centre lies 40 kilometres from the town of Louis Trichardt in the Makhado District Municipality of Limpopo. Operating in the premises of the Makhado Continuous Professional Education Centre, the facility serves schools in the Vhembe District’s 27 Circuits Offices.

Some of the schools are in deep rural areas that are characterised by widespread poverty and unemployment.
Education in these conditions is difficult, particularly in the crucial subjects of Maths, Science and Technology. The centre offers the potential for bridging the digital divide and improving the quality of education in these under-resourced regions.

The centre has an ICT (Information, Communication and Technology) centre donated by Vodacom which has the following facilities:

  • An ICT training room that has 34 laptops stored in a trolley and a data projector.
  • An Internet café that has 16 desktops, bookshelf and a printer
  • A Mindset room with a TV and server for Mindset Learn programmes 

Programmes offered by the centre include:

  • Basic ABET Literacy Skills
  • Career Guidance
  • Maths and Science Camps during school holiday.
  • Teacher Professional Development /Curriculum Support workshops for educators
  • In-service training for Commercial subjects educators for the whole province.
