TelOne Centre for Learning has postponed its 2023 graduation ceremony, with at least 600 students now expected to graduate next year.

The postponement has been necessitated by the on-going restructuring, which is relooking at the institution's facilities, systems, staff capacity and teaching and learning methodologies in preparation of the university status application.

In a statement this afternoon, TelOne corporate communications head, Mrs Melody Harry, said: "In assessing and stress testing the systems, it became necessary for at least 600 students in the supposed graduating class to be given more learning time so that specific subject areas are adequately covered.

"We wish to assure all stakeholders that robust mechanisms have been put in place to safeguard the integrity of our courses and ensure that we continue to produce quality graduates, which has been our hallmark since the opening of the training centre."

The college has been developing ICT skills for the local market, particularly at a time the Government is driving economic growth through the use of technology for the fulfilment of Vision 2030. Following a partnership with the National University of Science and Technology (Nust), which established the Bachelor of Technology Telecommunications Engineering degree at the college, the pursuit for university status is expected to boost the scope of programming and see the establishment of the first Telecommunications and Information Communication Technology specialised university.
