ALFRED MUTAVA -INDUSTRIAL LIASON OFFICER
This department co ordinates the attachment of trainees at NKABUNE TTI.Industrial attachment being a compulsory exercise is taken very seriously at NTTI.
All trainees are, therefore, required to go for an attachment session in the relevant field for at least three months. Trainees are attached during the following periods: January to April, April to August and August to December.
The department starts preparing the trainees for the attachment at least six months in advance. At the same time the department liaises with the parents/guardians in getting suitable places of attachment where we expect our trainees to get the right skills and knowledge.
The trainees are supplied with a list of industries (Employers directory) from where they can choose the industries to contact. Currently our employers’ directory has more than 270 industries. These are places where we normally attach our students and have been very cooperative.
All trainees proceeding for attachments are insured with a reputable insurance company. The insurance cover for each group of trainees runs for a whole year. Before the trainees are released for the industrial attachment they are educated on all matters relating to industrial attachment through an orientation meeting attended by the administrators and all the academic HOD’s .
The department closely monitors the trainees on attachment and carries out an assessment of each and every trainee. The department liaises with the academic departments to carry out the assessment successfully.
Trainees proceeding for attachment are given attachment syllabus to guide the employers on the areas where to expose the attachee.A logbook is given to every trainee to record all the daily activities. The trainer at the industry is expected to countercheck the records on daily bases and make comments on the attachee’s progress.
Every trainee who completes attachment successfully is given an attachment certificate as proof of having gone for attachment.
