The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

The Me­dia Coun­cil of Kenya yes­ter­day launched a new cur­ricu­lum for col­leges of­fer­ing diploma-level cour­ses in jour­nal­ism. The cur­ricu­lum and ac­cred­i­ta­tion man­ual will stream­line and stan­dard­ise train­ing. and al­lows stu­dents who have grad­u­ated from ac­cred­ited col­leges to pur­sue de­gree cour­ses. CEO Harun Mwangi said the cur­rent cur­ricu­lum has been out of tune with re­al­ity, as it does not re­spond to the needs of the me­dia in­dus­try, the dy­nam­ics in so­ci­ety and the qual­ity of pro­fes­sion­al­ism. He said the new cur­ricu­lum is solid enough to be ap­plied in diploma train­ing. Mwangi said the Coun­cil is cur­rently in fi­nal con­sul­ta­tions with the Kenya Na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions Coun­cil to ad­min­is­ter the first na­tional ex­ams un­der the cur­ricu­lum.
