Education Department

In our mission to bring holistic development to the community and around it, one of our main focus areas lies in providing quality education, which is affordable for everybody. For that matter, the Moravian Church in Tanzania - South West Province operates several educational institutions in Mbeya town and the surrounding region. For more information about each institution, click on the links below.

The Moravian Vocational Training Centre (MVTC) is located in Mbeya city, Old Forest, Kadege. It is registered by the Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA) and offers long courses of two years in seven different disciplines and a big variety of short courses. 

Chunya Moravian Vocational Training Centre
The Training Center is located about 2km away from Chunya town, but directly on the main road that leads right into town. Access to town seems to be good. The direct surroundings of the Training Center seems to be getting increasingly populated, as there are many houses under construction. This points to the improved economic power in this town.
The center consists of a main building (built in 2014), which contains a classroom, the administration office and the staff room. There are also 4 other buildings. A dormitory, a canteen and a staff house, where the students currently live together with the director of the center.
The other buildings were built in 2016 and 2019. The center was built by a private donor.

Mbozi Secondary School
The Mbozi Secondary School, located on the beautiful countryside of Mbozi, is one of the oldest private schools in the Mbeya region. It offers courses in all levels (Forms 1-6).

Moravian Teachers Training College
After the state launched the campaign “one school for each village” in 2000, a lot of schools have been built. Unfortunately, the number of teachers could not respond to the demand. There was a significant increase in the demand for qualified teachers. In response to this need, the Teachers’ College of the Moravian Church was opened in Mbeya city in 2009.

Utengule Theological College

The Utengule Theological College is located in a quiet and peaceful area, surrounded by the beautiful environment of Utengule, which is just seven kilometers outside of Mbalizi. It offers a certificate course in theology, an evangelist course (bible training) and a certificate course in Music.
