SEC­TOR CAN UN­LOCK IN­DUS­TRIAL GROWTH IN KENYA

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Last year, Prin­ci­pal Sec­re­tary in the depart­ment of Science and Tech­nol­ogy Col­lette Suda said neg­a­tive per­cep­tions about Tech­ni­cal Vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing In­sti­tu­tions are to blame for youth un­em­ploy­ment and slow eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. She said though TVET in­sti­tu­tions are key to eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion, the en­roll­ment of stu­dents has been poor be­cause “there is a per­cep­tion that one only goes there if they fail to make it to other in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing”. Suda said some stu­dents placed by KUCCPS do not even re­port. She said if em­braced well, the sec­tor can un­lock in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion in Kenya.
