Kampala: Uganda’s leading private Victoria University has launched a community program dubbed “Diversify Your Skill” in partnership with secondary school teachers to improve the education sector in the country, but also, to improve on their financial muscles.
According to Mr Bill Nkeeto, the acting Vice-Chancellor Victoria University, the program will help teachers build their capacity to interact better with the society in which they live, offer guidance and counseling, community remote learning and parental guidance during this COVID-19 pandemic period.
He added that the exercise is expected to generate market information about survival mechanisms of communities, interests and learning goals of University students under a mission of ensuring transformational education.
“They are in the way incapacitated, so as Victoria University that engages so much with the community trying to solve people’s problems, we felt a need for them to come we tell them about us, we see how we can work together in a number of ways” Bill added.
The university promised to facilitate the teachers budget and every student they refer to join Victoria University, the recommender will earn a commission of Shs200,000 and Shs150,000 for bachelor’s degree and diploma programs respectively.
Here are some of the courses offered at Victoria University.
