The Ministry of Education and Google have collaborated to launch a new course for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVETs).

On March 1, Education CS George Magoha unveiled a technological hub that will launch the Software Development course in TVETs.

300 students have already been chosen and will participate in a six-month training on the newly introduced course. The decision has been taken to improve the quality of technology-based courses available in the country.

A Google representative, Charles Murito, explained that the course would improve digital acquisition skills in Kenya. This, he says, is in preparation for the country’s transition to the information age.

“We believe that human capital is an essential component in ensuring that there are transformations digitally.

“Not just within government and delivering e-governance services, but also in every sector of society,” Murito said, citing the hotel industry, agriculture, and health care.

He went on to say that once the system is in place in the institutions, successful students will be able to find work both in Kenya and abroad.

“We believe that integrating software developer training across TVETs will be beneficial. We will see more qualified students graduating from TVET systems. They will have the capability to take on jobs not just in Kenya but around the world “He elaborated.

This comes at a time when Kenyan schools are transitioning to digital learning in order to expand their reach even further into underserved communities.

The ICT Integration in Primary Education (Digital Literacy Project) is one of the key flagship projects. President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration has been implementing across institutions.
