The Technical University of Kenya VC Prof. Francis Aduol met the group of 10 of 13 TU-K students who just completed a 7-month teaching assignment in France. The VC also met new cohort of 8 who are preparing to leave for France in September.
Since October 2019, TU-K has been participating in the programme that takes Kenyan university students to France to teach English while French students come to Kenya to teach French. This exchange is a collaboration between France Éducation International, an agency of the French Ministry for National Education, Youth and Sports, the Embassy of France in Kenya and Somalia, and Kenyan universities.
Among the returning students, 11 have earned an extension to their assignments and will return to France in September for a further 7 months. Two of the previous group of 13 have acquired scholarships to pursue post-graduate training.
During the meeting with the VC, the students who returned shared their experiences in France. Prof. Aduol, also awarded certificates to TU-K French Club members amongst them who had done tremendous activities within the club. He congratulated all the students who have benefited from this programme indicating that they are the University and country’s ambassadors.
