SHHH KIST TRAINING IN PROGRESS
There’s a common slogan in Swahili which states, “mgeni njoo mwenyeji apone” translated to may the guest come and bring some relief to the host. The arrival of a guest(s) is considered a blessing especially in the African community and who doesn’t love blessings! The feeling of creating camaraderie with other Institutions is enigmatic. Through such visits we get to brainstorm, showcase and learn from each other. That’s exactly what transpired last week when members of Kiambu Institute of Science and Technology paid our Nutrition Unit a visit.
A benchmarking program evaluates individual performance against the benchmark and determines where improvement is needed. Organizations contact better-performing facilities to gain useful insights for practice improvements hence you can guess our delight when KIST contact us on the same. At the end of the day the KIST members were able to understand:
- How our enrolment procedure for the course transpires.
- Our curriculum and it’s delivery.
- How our trainers conduct research.
- How we engage our students in practical’s, practicums, attachment and fieldwork.
- How skills are conducted in our well-equipped skills lab.
- How our nutrition students intertwine with other departments when performing skills.
We are glad to have had the opportunity to share our wisdom with KIST. We are thankful to them for choosing NCMTC as their college for benchmarking.
We are honestly proud of how far we’ve come. From underdogs to being a sense of inspiration to other Institutions truly when it comes to mastering a skill, time is the only ingredient.
