CTS College is not just a place of study or work, but truly a place which brings people together – students, lecturers, programme managers, staff and employers. The inclusiveness of the organization is largely attributed to the Mr. Ravi Ragoonath, the Executive Director whose passion to serve others has created an organization that is reputed for having one of the best student support systems in Trinidad and Tobago and the region.
Mr. Ragoonath is not just an administrative figure, but features prominently in the classroom as well. His first love is teaching, as it allows him to build a stronger bond with his students so that he can know him better and understand their needs to better serve them.
Ravi, as he is affectionately called, has an open door policy and enjoys interacting with staff and students. He is extremely competitive and can be seen on sports day on the ground supporting his team. Though not the most coordinated of players, Ravi is very involved in students' activities such as cricket and football competitions.
Mr. Ragoonath is well known amongst his students for going above and beyond the call to provide the required support for his students so that they have all the tools they need to be successful. To the students he is a coach, a mentor and a friend. To his staff, he is creative, innovative and extremely positive.
