Institutional History

After Zimbabwe's Independence in 1980 the Government realised that there would be a high demand for teachers as people would not come out of the "bush" due to the end of the war, hence it created a direct push in establishing teacher learning centres.

In Arcadia, where a former predominately coloured neighbourhood housed Morgan High School, government then decided to convert the boarding facility of the high school together with its dining facility into Morgan Zintec Teachers College.

Its doors would open in 1981 after turning 3 hostels, 3 staff houses and the dining hall into the Zimbabwe Intergrated National Teacher Educational Course (ZINTEC) which to this day still works closely with Morgan High School.

The drive and the push was to develop cadres that would be prepared to work in the rural areas as the need for learning institutions in such areas was (and still is) high.
