The Centre provides skills development in engineering-related studies such as Metal Fabrication and Welding, Carpentry and Joinery, Automotive Mechanics, and Entrepreneurship skills, which enable young people to find employment and start their own small businesses.
The Centre was closed briefly in 2009 in order to facilitate extensive refurbishment of the property as well as to replace out-dated equipment. It was reopened in January 2010 under new management with Marie Kalembi as the principal.
The management team, staff, and management board of the institution are particularly visionary and motivated. The mere fact that a key institution of service to the community has revived, is an inspiration to many. For the staff members it is a source of employment to whose sustainability they are committed.
