Students Intern-ship in Different Companies in Tanzania 2015

We thank all the companies that have hosted our 3rd year students in their professional companies. This is the biggest milestone for students to gain practical experience while working on different client assignments. We expect the students to learn the difference process and techniques as applied by the companies for example; pre and post production, work ethics, quality production, creativity among other issues.

We believe our students will also contribute to the company’s value, mission and vision. Our students are well prepared through our well balanced curriculum which builds on all theoretical, creative and practical learning in film making.

Our 3rd Years Students Are Ready for the World of Work

After intensive lectures and successfully working on clients’ assignments under KFI production unit, it’s now time our 3rd year’s students get introduced into new spaces of World of work. Currently preparations are under-way while the students eagerly wait for their intern-ship confirmations. The main aim of having the students working as interns at various media companies is for them to continue the learning process in a production house and apply the lessons taught in class which will improve their employability chances. The intern-ship will start in February to April 2015, with the graduation expected somewhere in June 2015. Our training is hands on, with a good balance of theoretical lectures and practical assignments.

We mentor and coach the students on the vital employability skills whilst also working on their life skills that help them adapt into new organization cultures. This week we have the pleasure of hosting Mr. Wilson Masaka from Nairobi, Kenya who is a social entrepreneur, IT expert and a trainer. He has vast experiences working with youth groups in the ICT sectors through the Nairobits model.

The ongoing lectures are based on the following;

  1. Communication skills
  2. Work ethics
  3. Planning and organization cultures and structures (How to adapt into new work environments).
  4. Moving from the comfort zone into new power zone of learning new things.
  5. Career mapping and goal setting
Students input during the feedback session focusing on a case study on organization cultures, structures and related work ethics.

Our biggest philosophy is learning by doing and we take a more participatory approach allowing our students to have different view points during the group discussion that has improved our students’ self-esteem, confidence and language barriers.

“It is always a great pleasure to share my skills and experiences with the young people and of course learn from them. I’m happy being part of the KFI team. The creativity and the zeal of the team make me feel home away from home. I would recommend any company looking for great film maker, camera operators etc to come to KFI.” – Wilson Masaka
