Learning Centers as Opportunities for Growth and Partnerships
Since its inception, Kaleo College Team has learnt the importance of networking and partnerships. At the Core of this has been the development of Learning Centers, an element that allows the College to work with strategic partners to take Theological Training to other counties at the minimum cost possible.
Learning Centers has opened doors for students that would otherwise have little access to Theological Training because of their work/family schedule, financial limitations, and other constraints to their availability. With learning centers, such students have access to training within their neighborhoods.
The College has also benefited from these partnerships through an increase in the student body. For instance, in 2017 we graduated students from the Makueni Learning Center, and in 2019 another group from Embu Learning Center. We acknowledge that these centers have provided a critical opportunity to make Kaleo known outside Kiambu and Murang’a.
The first Center was in Kiambu County, and from their the College has diversified to its current home in Murang’a County, and other learning centers. We also will be opening additional centers in the coming year, again expanding our student enrollment.
The Core of these Learning Centers has been networking with churches and individuals. For instance, the host of Embu Center met us through the host of Makueni Center, and others have met us through our students and staff members. Other College programs such as the Pastoral Care Program https://www.kaleocollege.ac.ke/the-pastoral-care-program/ has shown us the value of networking.
Networking means obtaining opportunities for growth, getting supporters of the vision, and continually having individuals and groups that walk with the College in various activities. Networking and partnerships are a resource that cannot be overemphasized.
