Message from deputy principal in charge of Academics
The office of the deputy principal in charge of academics affairs was created in January 2020 when the public service commission appointed me as the deputy principal academics. Previously I have served as a senior trainer at sigalagala National polytechnic teaching Engineering Mathematics in Building & civil engineering and Electrical & electronics in the department of engineering. I have a wealth of experience in administration, having served for 20 years as a principal in high school. My utmost task is to actualize the academic vision and mission of friends college kaimosi to chair the academic board whose membership consist of all heads of academic departments both at th main campus and our Mbale town campus – trainers. The trainers of Friends college kaimosi are highly qualified with huge experience in training technical trainees and preparing them to join the industrial field. We put a lot of emphasis on both acquisition of technical skills and academics and hence we ensure that only qualified trainees who meet our pre-requisite requirements enroll in courses they qualify for. We have a very strong academic policy which was crafted by the academic board, which ensures that all academic procedures viz timetabling, training, evaluation and industrial attachment are adhered to.
Our trainees are well exposed to research and innovation through the TVET fair exhibitions which sharpens their mind and skill in thinking creatively and having the ability to perform purposeful technical skills with ease.
Finally our college is founded on the strong Quaker values viz simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship. These core Quaker values are modeled and lived by both trainees and trainers.
Welcome all to Friends college kaimosi a research and innovation centre one of the best technical institution in Vihiga and Kenya at large. Our fees are affordable.
