Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i sets up team to govern varsities accreditation

By Graham Kajilwa | April 26th 2016

A committee has been set up to harmonise the accreditation of professional and technical programmes in institutions of higher learning.

The Programme Accreditation Consultative Committee (PACC) is mandated to address the conflicts that have seen professional bodies refusing to approve programmes that universities and colleges offer, a move that has created anxieties among students and parents.

Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i said the committee will also review pending cases surrounding the programmes in light of the changing industry complexities. Some of the conflicts witnessed include the one between the Engineers Registration Board (ERB) and the Council of Legal Education (CLE) over the training of engineering and law programmes in some universities.

 "Ours is a public trust which all of us must discharge," said Dr Matiang'i.
