Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) and Braeburn Schools signed an MOU on 28th June to facilitate teacher training. This partnership seeks to ensure that students from the Faculty of Education also get a chance to learn how to teach in International Schools.
Prof. Mbae, the Vice Chancellor, in his speech said that the MoU is beneficial to the University, as it will go a long way ensuring that its students are empowered. Through this partnership, new doors will be opened for the students hence turning them into global citizens as their thinking is broadened.
The Group Managing Director – Braeburn Schools, Mr. Rob Williams, pointed out that about 20 years ago his institution noticed that graduate teachers had good theoretical knowledge but they lacked the practical skills to deal with the nature of international schools. Through this program, Williams said, the attitude of the trainees is changed positively and they become broadminded.
Ms. Caroline Njilu, a student from CUEA and beneficiary of the partnership, was elated as she shared her experience in the training. Courtesy of the partnership, Ms. Njilu was awarded a scholarship in Postgraduate Certificate in International Education with the University of Nottingham.
The partnership between CUEA and Braeburn Schools began a year ago but is now formalized courtesy of this Memorandum of Understanding.
