The CTS College Social Events Committee is at the forefront of holding events geared at enhancing the student experience.

The committee consists of a mixture of staff, students and alumni and the results can be seen on the CTS College Social Events Committee Facebook page, where live videos and pictures are posted to showcase the level of participation and enjoyment at the various events!

Student Council

Utilizing members from the different programmes, the student council's role is to identify and highlight issues and provide recommendations towards enhancing the student experience. It is a representation of the voices of the students and is used as a liaison between the teachers, academic staff, administrative staff and directors.

CTS College recognises the instrumental need for suitable, qualified and adequate support for students in the areas of counseling and guidance, and has invested in the services of personnel to lend support in the following areas:

1) One-to-One Counseling

  • This activity deals with personal issues of the student--exploring ideas, feelings, and behaviors, particularly as they relate to the student's learning and success in school. An additional focus of this activity is the student's Personal Learning Plan, which links the student's strengths/weaknesses, interests and values to a career path/goal to be achieved.

2) Group Counseling

  • Groups exist for discussing concerns, sharing ideas, resolving conflicts, remediating skills and problems, selecting and planning goals, and giving and receiving feedback. Sessions are designed to address students' needs in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development.

3) Classroom Guidance

  • Classroom-guidance presentations are used to disseminate information that is part of the school-counseling curriculum. Group interaction helps students develop interpersonal skills while learning the concepts and skills necessary to succeed in school, resolve conflict, make informed choices, and set life goals.

4) Consultation/Collaboration

  • Counselors consult and collaborate with teachers, staff, parents and community members as partners in the lives of students. Consultation/Collaboration is a cooperative process that improves the skills and effectiveness of the team working with students individually and in groups.

  • Active Listening
