The Institute encourages students to develop and participate in many extra curricular activities and organizations as their work-study loads permit. Experience gained in working with others in the achievement of common goals provides invaluable training.
This is the newest of the clubs. Students enter various local and national competitions and are trained at the highest level by local and international mooting specialists.
Photography Students’ Club
The Photography Students’ Club operates under the sponsorship of faculty and staff members. It provides an opportunity for students to enhance their knowledge and practice in the art of photography. Under the guidance of a Photography Tutor Ronnie Chin, the club goes island hopping every fortnight to get the ‘right picture’.
Young Video Producers‘ Online Club
This is a chat room where students share ideas and technizues on various aspects of cideo production. It acts also as a notice board with links to the CPTC’s website as well as the Women in Film and Television (WIFTI) Jamaica Chapter site.
The UNESCO Club explores developmental issues using the video camera as a tool. It gives students the opportunity to develop video-journalistic skills and to network with the Jamaica National Commission for UNESCO and participate in their activities.
Students have access to first aid. Emergency medical services are available for students at the nearby Nuttall Memorial Hospital.
The MTI benefits from the services of 2 of CPTC’s Fire Wardens, one of whom is always on call. The necessary fire escapes and paraphernalia are in easy access and students are asked to comply with the fire drills.
MTI is a student centred institution. It will therefore, endeavour to make suitable provisions for its students’ well being such as the following:
Institute hosts employment sessions for finalizing students. These sessions are geared toward assisting the student to prepare properly for the job market and introduce deportment and professional dress, and etiquette.
We also assist the student in gaining employment and exposure to the working world. We host an Annual Career/Job Fair at the end of each school year.
Currently we do not have an in-house counseling unit. However, students are referred as the need arises.
