Govt Announces Crackdown on Technical Schools

  • Josephine Kasera, the Director of Standards and Compliance at the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA), on March 17, stated that uncredited technical schools will soon be closed.

    Speaking at the Kenya Institute of Management (KIM) and Management University of Africa (MUA) graduation ceremony, Kasera, stated that TVETs should be accountable and registered legally.

     “If we find institutions operating without registration or accreditation we close them! In the past two years, we have closed quite a number of institutions that were found in such circumstances.”

    “On the same note, I would like I’d like to encourage sponsors, parents, and guardians to take their trainees to institutions accredited by TVETA,” she added.

    The Kisaju, Kajiado County ceremony celebrated students awarded diplomas in various fields.

    Graduates were urged to excel in their professions by applying their knowledge to societal problems.

    TVETA officials extolled TVET programs at the event, saying they are aligned with the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

    Changes were made to their curriculum to adjust to the phasing out of the 8-4-4 system. 

    Many students struggle to land job opportunities after graduating from unaccredited colleges. 

    Several accredited schools were also found to teach unapproved courses, wasting students’ time and money. 

    Unaccredited colleges shut down in the past include Intraglobal Training Institute and Vision Stars Training Institute, based in Nairobi.

    A lack of facilities for training and a shortage of human resources were cited as some major challenges institutions face in Kenya.
