Uganda joined Rwanda and Tanzania as the third country in East Africa to host the Train the Trainer (TTT) programme this month. The programme was hosted by Future Technologies at their new premises at ISBAT University. 19 participants from across various ATCs in Uganda attended the 3 day programme, led by the Peter Maina from ICDL Africa, Rwanda office.
The programme was officially opened by Michael NIYITEGEKA (ICDL Country Manager Uganda). He spoke of the need for a standardised way of delivery of ICDL programme in delivering digital skills in the ATCs. He recommended that TTT be delivered more to ensure that the trainers are properly trained and certified. He informed them of the responsibility they have with regards to the growth of ICDL in Uganda for they deliver the product to the clients and how we do it is of significant importance to all us. He committed to work closely with all the ATCs and support them in the event of any other TTT trainings in the future.
On the closing day we had the honour to have the Future Technologies Board of Directors Chairman Varghese Mundamattam who again reiterated the importance of standard training being used to deliver ICDL. He mentioned the importance he attaches to ICDL programme and promised to host more such programmes in the future. He was accompanied by Hareesh Kumar who played a major role in organising the event to be hosted at Future Technologies.
The participants were full of praises for the TTT programme which they said will go a long way in helping them deliver the training in a confident way having understood the approach for all the modules bearing in mind the changes that came with the ICDL enhancements.
