THE Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) has recognised the newly opened Caritas Business College.
Deputy secretary for policy quality assurance Thimon Bune, who officiated the opening of the Caritas Business College in Port Moresby on Tuesday, said he was proud to stand before Caritas Technical Secondary School to see it upgraded to a college.
“Today, I’m confirming that Caritas has government recognition,” he said.
“Caritas, within a short period of time, has been recognised by the Department of Higher Education Research Science and Technology.”
Bune said Caritas was privileged to have been given the recognition as there were other institutions around the country which were applying for the same recognition.
DHERST recognises Caritas Business College students taking two programmes – diploma in office administration and tourism and hospitality management.
Bune said students who were accepted to study at the Caritas Business College students would be eligible for the government’s Tertiary Education Student Assistance Scheme (Tesas).
He said CBS would eventually need to add more programmes as it grew into a fully-fledged college.
