Management empowers PSU
According to the Dean, this workshop is conducted annually to the new members in order to equip them with leadership skills.
The Dean highlighted that the workshop involves a number of people from various departments who come to present and inform the students on how they can handle different situations in different scenarios.
“The Principal is invited to give information on the University structure, the Registrar informs them about the reporting lines and the rules of how they should handle issues,” he added.
One of the presentations from the Estate Development Officer centered on infrastructures and furniture and also on how they can report any problems related to this area.
“They have also been trained on issues to do with security, finance, conflict management, how to use the media as a tool of transforming the students’ image and how they can plan their work so that it should not jeopardize their studies.
The PSU Vice President Victor Nkhambule explained that the workshop has been an eye opener to them as a group and also to him personally.
“I very much appreciate on what I have learned in as far as reporting lineage is concerned. There have been issues like a student getting sick in the middle of the night, yet I did not know what I needed to do,” Nkhambule said.
Nkhambule added that after the workshop, the team met to come up with events and activities, which could help the needy students and help portray the affirmative side of Polytechnic students.
