Country visits: Zambia, Malawi and Kenya

In November, ABE Founder Chairman, Lyndon Jones, and ABE Education Consultant, Dr Penelope Hood, visited Zambia to attend a graduation ceremony for ABE students.

The ceremony was a huge success and was attended by around 500 students, family members, press and dignitaries. There was a performance by the Police Band before the master of ceremonies gave an address about inspirational speaking.

Whilst in Zambia, Lyndon and Penelope also met with the Technical Education, Vocational and Entrepreneurship Training Authority (TEVETA) to discuss aligning the new ABE qualifications to the Zambian education framework.

After Zambia, Lyndon and Penelope travelled to Malawi to meet with ABE

colleges and to introduce them to the new ABE qualification structure. There were meetings arranged with staff from the Malawi College of Accountancy, Lilongwe Technical College and Shareworld Open University, all of whom were impressed with the new QCF qualifications now offered by ABE.

The final leg of their journey saw Lyndon and Penelope travel to Kenya – a country in which ABE’s qualifications continue to play a major part in the local education system. A college consultation meeting was held at the Sarova Stanley Hotel in Nairobi and staff members from all local colleges were

invited to attend. The meeting was chaired by ABE Council Member, Peter Okaka and there were speeches from Lyndon, Penelope and ABE’s Representative for Kenya, S.K. Gupta. Lyndon and S.K. Gupta spoke about recent ABE developments and progression opportunities while Penelope updated attendees about opportunities for students at Anglia Ruskin University.

The new programme structure was well received and ABE looks forward to welcoming many more students in Kenya and throughout Africa in the future.
