The Principal Secretary (PS) for Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Dr. Esther Thaara Muoria has appealed to industries to collaborate with TVET institutions.
Speaking during the opening ceremony of the National TVET Conference at KICC, Dr. Muoria emphasized their active involvement in shaping skills of students through training programmes.
“TVET trainees training in industries can make a profound impact on the future of our workforce,” she stressed.
Additionally, the PS tested the innovated Automated Posho Mill which spiked interest from guests and participants at the conference.
Another interesting innovation was the Water Metering System.
The conference revealed that the Government in collaboration with 800 companies is set to anchor the Dual TVET framework programme in Kenya (Policy and Standards) in 60 TVET institutions.
Reportedly, the purpose of the conference was to formulate a framework for enhancing industry-driven skills development and youth employability.
