Provision of skills and competencies is critical for the development of hands-on workers and a skilled human resource base for national development. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions are responsible for offering programmes that equip the graduates with quality and relevant skills and competencies to meet the needs of the labour markets.
The Constitution of Kenya provides under its 2nd schedule that upon devolution TVET institutions shall be under the responsibility of the National Government whereas the village polytechnics, craft centres and farmers training centres and by extension similar institutions that train operators in vocational trades and skills, shall be under the responsibility of respective County Governments. Arrangements are underway to decentralize the operations of the Ministry including TVET to all the 47 counties.
