Registrar's Office

Message from the Registrar-Mr. John Gitau

The Office of the Registrar is majorly in-charge of admission of students, marketing of programmes and administration of examinations among other duties. The registrar is assisted in marketing and admissions and administration of Examinations by Assistant registrar and Examinations officer respectively. The office counsel and offers consultation to both students and their benefactors on the right courses which suit their aspirations and career path. Consequently the students are given TWO weeks to change to their preferred courses. In addition, we advise students who have underperformed in particular subjects that may hinder their registration with regulatory or professional bodies to upgrade the same with KNEC while pursuing their course of choice.

The Eldoret National Polytechnic (TENP) open policy to both students, parents, sponsors, the community , peace and tranquility, and academic performance has a bearing on the high student enrollment which currently stands at over 12,800 students. The ratio of female to male students at TENP currently stands at 1 : 1.35 while the ratio of Female to Male for Science Engineering and Technology courses is 1 : 1.5 Tenp has introduced various distance-learning modules in Business and Entrepreneurship and Human Resource Departments targeting working class citizens. The state of the art Equipments from the Government of Kenya through the Ministry of Education ,Technical and Vocational Training has enhanced excellence in CBET and SET programmes which are aligned to the vision 2030 and in addition prepared the trainees in the field of work especially self employment strategies.

TENP invites all prospective students for the MAY 2020 intake.

Term 1 from 7th January 2020 to 29th March 2020----- Term 2 from 6th May 2020 to 29th July 2020---- Term 3 from 9th September 2020 to 29th November 2020

TENP range of courses, besides craft, Diploma, Higher Diploma also include CBET artisan courses targeting KCPE , KCSE granduands with a mean grade of D- and Jua kali apprentices aligned to the “BIG FOUR AGENDA”. Consequently, Tenp has kept pace with its social-corporate responsibility by informing the citizenry of some skills that may address MANUFACTURING as one of the big four agenda. Consequently a CBET area that is not attractive but highly sought after because of lack of skilled manpower is Welding! We urge the Kenyan citizenry to take up this CBET skilled field at Tenp .

TENP is accredited by the following regulatory bodies: TVETA, KMLTTB, KASNEB, KNEC, Pharmacy and Poisons board (PPB), and Kenya Nutritionists and Dieticians Institute (KNDI).Besides orientation and prayer days, Tenp students are informed about other communication channels available: Tenp website, Department notice boards, Students notice boards and through class representatives.We invite all final year Tenp students to update their contact address with their respective Department and to join the Tenp Alumni association whose benefit cannot be quantified: Employers normally request specific skilled areas within very short notices
