Our History

The National College of Tourism (NCT) originates from the Hotel & Tourism Training Institute (HTTI) which was established in 1969 under a British firm called "Hallmark Hotels Ltd". The objective was to provide basic skills in Front Office Operations, Housekeeping & Laundry, Food Production and Food & Beverage Service. The Institute was first handed over to Tanzania Tourist Corporation (TTC) and then in 1977 to the Ministry of Natural Resources & Tourism. Due to the emerging need for improving service delivery and the growth demand of the tourism industry, NCT was launched as an Executive Agency under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism on January 24th 2003 in accordance with the Executive Agency Act No. 30 of 1997.
