Office of The Deputy Principal (Academic Affairs)

 

Quality education and training is a system of learning that produces well educated and trained individuals who can effectively and competently handle matters of concern within their area of specialization. Education and training is more than reading, writing and calculations. It is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and is critical in reducing poverty and inequality. The future of this country is vested on quality Education and Training at all levels of our education system. The foundation of every great nation lies in the Education and Training of its citizenly both young and old. I wish to encourage private sector to shift their corporate social responsibilities funding from entertainment and leisure to scholarships especially in technical education and vocational training as a matter of urgency.

World focus is now centered on Technological Innovation and Information that’s why we train our graduates to bring new ideas to their work environment as a way of expanding opportunities through quality education and training. To live fulfilling lives in this new emerging world and to become an architect of the future, you need to be ready to reinvent yourself throughout your live. Harvard psychologist and philosopher William James at the beginning of 20th century distinguished between those who are ‘’once born’’- who do not stray from the straight and narrow and those who are’’ twice born’’-who embrace fundamental change.
