    Falcon Cap College opens at Nyika


    - A new college offering form one to form six places and tertiary education is on the offing at Nyika Growth Point in Bikita and construction of classroom blocks is underway.
    The college is called Falcon Cap and is owned and run by Douglas Makuku, a Harare business mogul who was born and grew up in Bikita. Falcon is a unique college because it is one of the few in the country that offers secondary and tertiary education.
    It is located at Imperial Foods complex in Duma location and some of the tertiary courses on offer include Plumbing, Cosmetology, Boiler making, Hotel and catering, electrical systems.
    The College offers National Certificates, Diplomas and Higher National Diplomas. It is expected to enroll students without full 'O' levels and these will train in short courses like carpentry, metal fabrication, cell phone repairs and dressmaking.
    The college has another branch in Chinhoyi with a student enrolment of 500.
    Things are pointing upwards at the College as construction work is turning the once derelict Imperial Foods complex into a hub of activity.
    Makuku, who is the founder of the college confirmed the developments. He told The Mirror that he thought of the idea as an extension of his heartfelt love for his home area. He said he has grand plans for the college and he maintained that the fees at the college will remain low so as to accommodate the poor.
    "We have met the requirements of the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and we have submitted all the required documents to council and have already started lessons, we are only waiting for council to give us a letter of approval," said Makuku.
    He said the college has a board of Directors chaired by Fanuel Mukaro.education news
