January 14, 2021
Vancouver Island University has announced that it has joined the Mastercard Foundation’s Young Africa Works in Kenya-TVET initiative. VIU will work with Durham College and Humber College to support three Kenyan institutions in technical and vocational education. The collaboration will focus on establishing curriculum and materials to train junior electricians, supporting the implementation of the program, and training instructors. “With an expansion into new trades areas in Kenya, additional VIU instructors will be able to broaden their global perspective and enhance their intercultural competency skills,” said VIU Manager of Global Engagement Darrell Harvey. “There will also be opportunities for other student service areas to become involved in these global engagement activities.” VIU (BC)
