“TVETS are today the most sought after institutions because they offer hands-on training and experience. We also collaborate with relevant industry players who contribute on the kind of training that fits the job market,” said Maina.

The principal called on parents to trust the technical institutions, promising to impact them with lifetime unique, enviable and modern skills which will make them hot cakes in the job market.

He invited those who qualified for university to also try their luck in these colleges.

“TVETS offer an opportunity to the youth to pursue their dreams. For those who qualify for university education but feel their dream careers will not be achieved as they are likely to be locked out by cut off points, they are free to join technical colleges,” he said.
