For 50 years, Evelyn Hone College has been contributing greatly to the economic development of Southern Africa through the provision of quality training to local and international students.

The college boasts being Zambia’s third highest learning institution behind the University of Zambia (UNZA) and Copperbelt University (CBU) respectively. This status makes the institution an ideal destination for students that choose to pursue careers in applied arts and sciences.

In the academic calendar, Evelyn Hone College enrolls above 3,500 students in various disciplines and there has been a growing demand for the courses on offer.

This has prompted Evelyn Hone College management, with the support of the government to open a new campus in Isoka district, Muchinga province. The Ministry of Education has given the institution a green light to utilize the infrastructure at the Isoka Trades Training Institute.

The new campus is expected to be operational as soon as construction on site is complete. The campus which opens this year in October will commence to enroll students pursuing health related programmes.

“We have enough manpower to ensure that we continue being an institution of preferred choice for training in applied arts, commerce, science and technology. Apart from extending its service to other parts of the country, the Isoka campus will decongest the Lusaka campus thereby enhancing efficiency at the college”

The college principal Mr. Daniel Fwambo is optimistic that the Isoka Campus which will be called ‘Evelyn Hone College Centre of Excellence for Training and Community involvement’ will benefit students from neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo and Tanzania. 

“The presence of the college in Isoka has undoubtedly brought about development to the country. It is high time local people start positioning themselves for the employment opportunities that will come with such development.”

Furthermore, the Isoka campus will open business prospects to various stake-holders therefore creating new job opportunities for the locals

Apart from the Isoka campus, the college has proposed to government to expand its services to other districts within the country.
