Sometime back, i escorted a friend who was looking for a job to a certain office. To my dismay, he was denied the job not because he didn’t have the qualifications but because the institution where he studied from (Royal Institute of Business and Technical Education), was “not recognised”!

This left many questions on my mind.

If the institution was not recognised, how did my friend know of its existence from a remote area in Kamuli? Besides, the institution is clearly visible in Bwaise town centre.

Why then did they say it was not recognised? The school is always advertised in all public media.
Do these bosses really see or read these papers?

I was also made to understand that whenever the institution is graduating its students, a senior official from the Ministry of Education is invited as chief guest. Isn’t that enough recognition?

What is the degree of ‘recognition’ and who is eligible to recognise institutions? What does the National Council for Higher Education say about this?
