Learn How to Code With Python
On January 29th 2020, the ktech CCE proudly launched “Learn How to Code” - the first initiative of its kind to be hosted and delivered at an accredited academic institution in Kuwait in partnership with the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS). Through this initiative, female students in years 11 and 12 were invited to participate in an intensive 8-week training program in one of the most widely-used programming languages – Python.
A key objective for this initiative was to expose female high school students to the field of programming. This will ideally spark, at an early age, an interest in this field and hopefully position them towards a future career in programming. If not, participating students will nevertheless acquire a valuable life skill that remains increasingly relevant in the job market.
3 weeks of the program were successfully delivered on campus to 50 participating female students from the Mubarak Al-Kabeer and Ahmadi governorates.
Following the shut-down of all campuses and educational organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Learn How to Code initiative was successfully migrated online in partnership with two online learning companies:

Microsoft Teams Workshop For Education
ktech implemented Microsoft Teams as the official platform for e-learning at our college since the month of April 2020 and accordingly has acquired extensive experience on using this platform, creating positive engagement with students and implementing best practices as recommended by the Microsoft Team. Accordingly, and in the interest of sharing knowledge and resources, the CCE organized a training program for educators in the Ministry of Education on how to use Microsoft Teams. The training included the participation of 15 teachers from the Ministry of Education across different grade levels and age groups. The training was conducted from August 23 until August 27, 2020 virtually through Microsoft Teams and was delivered by two faculty members from K-Tech.
MS Office training
The ktech CCE successfully delivers MS Office trainings to a wide variety of private sector clients across different industries, ranging from Banking, Education and Pharmaceutical. The goal of this training program is to support the clients in navigating different Office Suite applications across different levels of understanding – basic, intermediate and advanced.
The ktech CCE delivered a technologically-themed training program that specializes in Robotics for a younger audience (12 years and older) – also in partnership with KFAS.
The Robotics workshop was delivered virtually through Microsoft Teams. However, for the purposes of the workshop we ordered and delivered special robotics kits to all the homes of the participating students. The workshop was delivered from 5 July until 12 July and we had over 30 participants across different age groups.
The ktech CCE hosts a variety of webinars across different emerging topics in the training industry.
