In other words, the aim was to welcome new faculty, share experience, get inducted to the College and to the Company, and to become aware of duties and responsibilities so that the College’s vision and mission will be accomplished successfully.
In this program, the existing management and academic staff from Andinet Education and Training PLC, and Andinet International College introduced policies, procedures and prospects of the PLC, the holding company, and Andinet International College, the subsidiary institution.

The Induction Program, which 41 invited staff attended, was very productive where all participants actively participated and contributed their shares by reflecting their constructive comments and commitment for further improvement
Thanks to the invitation, December 13, 2021,we leaders of Andinet International College accompanied the visit organized by Andinet Education and Training PLC. and Andinet International School in their support of victims and injured Ethiopian Army at Bela Defense Force Hospital. The visit and the support of the Company (Birr one million) and the School (300,000 ETB worth of clothing and medicine) was highly appreciated. Yet, it is the minimum we could do to the army who gives life to our land; our home (our fathers and ancestors were born, grown, die, and became its soil; we pass through same; and pass it to our children).
On behalf of the College, I noted that we stand together for this noble/home cause and the College Community are collecting finance, clothing and other items to victims and displaced families. Once our organizers finalize, we can reach them as soon as we could and they need it.
