We are aware of what you are doing, we get positive feedback from the students on the services delivered,” said the Chief Principal.

Moreover, Koech applauded the Journalism Department, under the leadership of Madam Noella Sakwa, represented by James Ahela at the event for the remarkable growth of the course, where he handed over press cards to the media students.

The press cards will allow the journalism students to exercise their right to access information and perform their journalistic functions in society.

The campus has proved its potential in nurturing the journalistic profession, with the first cohorts having completed the coursework in the year 2023.

Centralising TENP functions

Meanwhile, the TENP boss emphasized the importance of enhancing and commercializing the Communication Languages and Beauty Therapy sections, decentralisation of some functions such as prayer days and championing the prior learning program (RPL) at the satellite campus to further diversify the institution’s offerings.

This is one of the campuses that we want to revamp and ensure it grows into a fully-fledged institution,” said Koech.

The Satellite Campus which began operations in the 2004, is equipped with state-of-the-art learning facilities, including classrooms, and a computer lab, and holds great potential for growth and exposure, being strategically located within the town centre.
