Ministry of Education is expected to release Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) results early next week.

According to Minister of Education and Sports Ms. Jessica Alupo, Uganda National Examination Board is to brief her on Monday and after the meeting a date will be fixed.

“We have not yet decided which date but “A’ Level results will be released next week. I will be briefed on 25th (Monday) and there after we shall be able to set the date,” Alupo announced .

Speaking at the Worldwide Training College graduation ceremony in Namuwongo, Alupo advised parents to deal with only registered education institutions.

“I take this opportunity to applaud the private sector like this collage on its work of improving the education system by working closely with my ministry to ensure that technical skills are given to students”, Alupo said.

However there are some institutions out there that are not registered that should be brought on board or face closure, Alupo warned. She adding, “before you enroll your child to a school or institution of learning, ensure that it’s registered.”

“Government liberalized education because it wanted to work closely with the private sector; it knew that the sector can help grow the economy. As the Ministry of Education, we work closely with the private sector and we have no problem with them,” she said.

Director Worldwide Training College Naome Kabasharira assured parents that the institute is registered with National Council of Higher Education and is an affiliate to Makerere University Business School and Warnborough University, UK. A total 135 students awarded certificates in eight programs and eleven diploma programs.
