Etched in its Strategic Plan 2018-2020, Polytechnics envisioned a growth plan in Rodrigues Island to cater to local population and its budding new economic activities.  Over the years, the island of Rodrigues has been gearing towards an enhancement to equip its population with competencies and skills that would enable itself to develop in its own specific ways. From smart tech to creative arts, from airport to sports management, from agriculture to ecology, from nursing to elderly care, emerging demands are many.

The upper technical education focus adopted by Polytechnics, differentiates it from its sister higher learning institutions and delivers on pressing emerging needs of Rodrigues Island. Polytechnics has drawn the attention of planners and policy makers and this has driven to a collaboration between Rodrigues Regional Assembly and Polytechnics Mauritius Ltd (PML) as the institution which offers a learning methodology that is focused on the holistic development of the individual.  This approach reverberates with Rodrigues in its intention to develop its human capital.

Soft Skills training, Diploma in Cyber Security, Diploma in Digital & Interactive media, Diploma in Logistics and Diploma in Leisure Management, among others are programmatic areas directly related to the expansion projects across different emerging sectors in the country. Rodrigues has its own specificities and vernaculars that make it distinctive. This should be respected. A copy paste formula or mentality will not make it.

With COVID 19 pandemic impacting, Rodrigues campus will operate in different phases.  Phase 1 and Phase 2 will run from Antoinette Prudence Human Resource Centre, Malabar while Phase 3 onwards will be from a dedicated bespoke campus.

Phase 1 will be a soft launch with Soft Skills training, Diploma in Cyber Security and Diploma in Digital & Interactive media and for Phase 2, PML is looking forward to the launch of all the selected courses.

With this new campus, students from Rodrigues can successfully complete their Diploma level courses while being at home, surrounded by their close relatives and without any financial strain and then join the exciting pathway to PML campuses in Mauritius for further studies and some career work experiences
