Education Minister Assures Resolution of Graduation Issue for Kabale NTC Students

By Obed Kankiriho

KABALE – Janet Kataaha Museveni, the Minister for Education and Sports, has offered reassurance to the students of Kabale National Teachers College (NTC) that the government is committed to resolving the issue of their graduation.

 

Back in May this year, the students of NTC Kabale had petitioned the Parliament of Uganda and the Ministry of Education and Sports, urging the release of their results and the facilitation of their graduation. These students had enrolled as diploma students in 2019, with their graduation expected in 2021. However, they had been facing delays in the processing of their results and graduation.

 

During an event, the Minister of Education’s message was conveyed by David Bahati, the State Minister for Trade Industry and Cooperatives, who represented the First Lady at the commissioning of infrastructure and the official closure of the Teacher Training Education (TTE) Project.

The TTE Project, launched in October 2016, aimed to enhance secondary teacher education by providing colleges with better infrastructure, digitalization tools, efficient management practices, and safe learning environments.

 

Under the TTE Project, Enabel, a Belgian Development Agency, played a crucial role in facilitating infrastructural works worth Ushs29.2bn at National Teachers’ College (NTC)-Kabale and NTC Mubende, as well as in other National Teachers’ Colleges such as Kabale, Kaliro, Mubende, Muni, and Unyama.

 

The focus was on strengthening the professional competencies of teacher trainers and future teachers, alongside adopting environmentally friendly renewable energy resources to reduce the carbon footprint.

 

The Minister’s message reiterated the Education Ministry’s dedication to resolving the graduation issues faced by the last batch of NTC diploma students.
