ICEP Dual Training Project
In March, we held a consultative meeting with leadership from all the three colleges, Kibondeni College (Nairobi), Kimlea Girls Technical Training College (Kiambu) and Tewa Training Centre (Kilifi), the management board of the Foundation and representatives of the Trustees were also present. Top on the agenda was the launch of the dual training project funded by ICEP. The purpose of this project is to ensure that the students at these institutions have the practical industry exposure they need to be work ready. Kibondeni College will lead the project as the college has previously implemented dual training with great success. Kibondeni has also formalized dual training as a fixed component of their instruction approach since 2020. The program which will run for 3 years will also see capacity strengthening of staff members across the three colleges.
