UBTEB EXAMINATIONS NOVEMBER -DECEMBER 2023
At the end of the Year, the learners of St. Konrad Integrated School and Institution do National Examinations from Uganda Business and Technical Examination Board. From these Examinations, learners who pass well get certificates that certify their skills in what they have learnt. The modality of Examinations and instruction have changed to Module System, in which learners do complete units, from which they can directly connect to the world of Work, even if they have done only one Module. In the year, Learners sit for Examinations two times, completing at least two or more modules in a year. We want to highlight with photos, how the Examinations were done. We congratulate both learners and Instructors for the work well done.
BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION
St. Konrad Integrated Vocational School trains both boys and girls in the building science which is abbreviated as BCP. Many young people like this course. It is also the main course which is readily applied in the field of work.
Our Learners do Tropical Agriculture. The new curriculum directs them not only to produce raw materials but also to add value to them in a form of processing. Tropical agriculture includes both plants and animals. The examinations were mainly centred on value addition.
CARPENTRY AND JOINERY
Carpentry and Joinery abbreviated as CJ is also known as wood work. It is a very interesting science which is not only important for making furniture for buildings but is also responsibly for construction of roofs and roofing in general. Roofing especially requires good knowledge in Joinery.
St.Konrad Integrated Vocational School and Institution trains both girls and boys in the skill of installation of electricity. This course is very popular as it has many opportunities since Uganda is undergoing vast programs of extending electricity in rural areas and in maintaining it.
Plumbing or Water Installation is an important Skill not only in supplying water to homes, or in making irrigation schemes but also in draining systems. St. Konrad is good at training both girls and boys in this trade.
WELDING AND METAL FABRICATION
Both boys and Girls learn in St. Konrad how to work with metals in welding them together and also in fabrication of doors, windows, stools, and all thinkable utilities.
TAILORING AND GARMENT CUTTING
St.konrad is good at training the youth in Skills concerning Tailoring, Garment cutting, ornaments and Fashion and Design.
UBTEB Examinations do not only test practical skills but also include theoretical knowledge on the skills in which learners are training. Each Skill has corresponding theory papers. Leaners also have to know business English, Entrepreneurship and Kiswahili Language.
St.Konrad Integrated Vocational School and Institution is famous for producing well training skilled artisans. Some will continue and become technicians after doing Craft training, which is the highest our institution offers. Those who want to train as Engineering join Higher Technical Institutions later.
The Motto of St. Konrad is SKILLS ARE FOOD.
Those who train in St. Konrad are indeed empowered to meet the basics of their lives and families and even to go beyond and enrich our country and countries which profit from their training.
