It was September 17 of 2007, when the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States of America, Mr. Alan Greenspan, proclaimed that humanity was living in a “Brave New World”. Mr. Greenspan’s discovery, although late, was indeed a reality. Since the end of the Russian communist regime and the fall of the former USRR, the world had plunged forward into an era of globalization. Internet was born, global communications flourished, and digital data became a standard. Thus the era of information had begun.
This intercultural process changed the rules for success for the working middle class, and pressured the upper elite, made up by the ruling captains of the industry, into a desperate race to achieve the one vital element that was becoming the holy grail of every business in this new global scenario: knowledge. And knowledge, for the lack of any miraculous solution, can only be attained through education. Many governments understood this quite quickly, other did not, and while countries like Japan started to improve their high school and university public funding during the 90’s, many South American nations did the exact opposite.
But why? Why had education became so important? Because the knowledge provided by academic instruction, turned out to be crucial in order to use the new available communication and information technologies. In turn this meant that those who understood the new ICT apparatus, could control the global market. Since then, specialized education changed from being an oddity attained by the elite, to become a necessity for everyone. But even in this digital world we now live, some physical things are still very much required. In the case of the education industry, facilities in optimum conditions for teaching became scarce. © 2016 R. Men / Dave Veg
Making education possible by creating the quality facilities
In this market for education, companies like the Trincity College Limited, based in Trinidad and Tobago, had begun to offer the possibility to rent high quality facilities for teaching and educational purposes.
Trincity College Limited undertook this complex field under the Quality Management “Golden Rule” of continuous improvement, marking a clear path towards excellence.
To achieve this Trincity College offers classrooms, auditoriums, theaters, computers labs, coffee shops, meeting rooms and even football fields and tennis courts. All of their services include the personalized assistance for the company or institution interested in renting these facilities.
