Mr. Kalenga Paulus – Co-Founder and Rector/CEO

As a fast-growing Institute in Namibia, committed to National Economic Development and Enhancing academic excellence in the Republic of Namibia, we strive toward quality education and industry skills development. Welcome to DayDream Institute of Training and Skills Development! Welcome to your home.

At DayDream Institute of Training and Skills Development students come first. Our staff and faculty will work with your best interests at heart to ensure that when you leave this institution you are poised for success. Every day, DAYDREAM INSTITUTE delivers and supports education because it improves the lives of students. Students, like yourself, go out into our community, and our nation, and they make the world a better place. This establishment was formed in 2019 in response to the needs of the community and offers a variety of study modes for both post-secondary students and adults. It is not my Institution nor yours but it is ours and we should strive in building and maintaining its high excellence by working together and making our Institution the best. Knowledge is key and we should strive for success not only by learning but also by planting our seeds. Let’s keep our high educational standards by ensuring that. We believe in the power of education and the impact it will have on your life.

We will work with your best interests in mind in all that we do. We offer a multitude of academic opportunities for you, but also remain committed to giving each of you individualized attention. Our small class sizes and online education options provide tremendous access to our gifted faculty members, and I urge you to tap into the minds of these leaders in their fields. For the complete Institute experience, I hope you will also explore our diverse programs, clubs, organizations, and On-Job Training opportunities available to complement your learning in the classroom. Please take advantage of these resources and opportunities. Mr. Kalenga Paulus Co-Founder and Rector/CEO Foreword6 Your experience at DAYDREAM INSTITUTE is what makes you part of it, and I am confident you will make it a good one. With your membership to the Institute community, comes many rights and responsibilities.

This student handbook outlines these rights and responsibilities, Institute policies and procedures, and Institute resources. Before you know it, you’ll be nearing your Diploma completion. Let me offer you a small piece of advice as you move forward in your academic career. I have learned a number of leadership lessons over the course of my career from experience, mentors, history, books, movies, and TV.

I believe that every DAYDREAM INSTITUTE student is a leader and has the capacity to make monumental improvements to the world in which we live. So, I would like to share with you one of my favorite leadership tips: “Decisions are made by those who show up.” For you, this means that the first step is showing up. Show up to class, show up to advising sessions, show up to the audition, show up to the game. You never know the decisions you could make that might change the world when you just show up. When you do show up, you are bound to face challenges. When that happens, please remember that faculty and staff are here to help you. This Guide outlines invaluable student services and guidelines that will be instrumental in your success.

Do not hesitate to reach out and ask for help. We will be there. We are here for you. I look forward to seeing you on campus. Go register!
