Kenyan Principal Named 3rd Best In The World.
During the 2022 World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) Awards of Excellence, Daniel Mutai, a former Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology student, was ranked third worldwide.
Mutai was named the bronze medalist in leadership in the diversity and inclusion category. She is a member of the Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions’ governing council.
The educator accepted the award and called it honor as she was honored in Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain, along with other experts in technical and vocational education.
He also promised to fight for inclusion in educational institutions.
“I am indeed truly and deeply honored to accept the leadership in diversity and inclusion award accorded to me. This is such a momentous and important occasion at the hallmark of my life.”
In addition, he dedicated the honor to all TVET instructors worldwide, particularly those who work to uphold leadership values like equity, integrity, inclusivity, and diversity.
Mutai has extensive experience in leadership roles at numerous technical training facilities and national polytechnics. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Education, Communication, and Technology from Moi University.
Additionally, he oversaw and assisted in the founding of four new technical training institutions, including Bureti, Kericho Township Vocational College, and Belgut Vocational Training College.
Jane Ngobia, the vice president of Sheridan College in Canada, and Dawn Ward, a student at Burton and South Derbyshire College, won gold and silver, respectively.
“I pledge to continue in my efforts to champion diversity and inclusion, particularly in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), and bring about positive change for youth empowerment in Kenya and globally,” he stated.
Ward also serves as the chair of the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics. She has received numerous honors, including one from Queen Elizabeth II in 2015 when she was given the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).
Ngobia is the co-founder and director of Shirika Canada, a non-profit organization and consultancy that supports sustainable socio-economic development in rural areas by building community capacity and offering management and technical assistance.
Humber College, Burton and South Derbyshire College, Box Hill Institute, Niagara College, and CONIF, which ranked in the top five in the category of global citizenship, are among the institutions that received praise.
More than 1,000 professionals from more than 50 different nations attended the congress.
The future of work, equity and inclusion, migration, and sustainability in the TVET field were among the topics discussed.
