Technical Traning College Rebranded to Kenya School of TVET; to Offer Stopped CDACC courses

The Kenya Technical Training College (KTTC) is now the Kenya School of Tvet, with a renewed and expanded mandate to create technical and vocational education and training practitioners.

Last month, during the institution’s 43rd graduation, the rebranding took place.

Legal Order 123 of 2022 and Presidential Order 1 of 2022 both approve this move.

The move would make Tvet practice contemporary, according to Edwin Tarno, the college’s chief principal.

Pre-service and in-service courses are included in the enlarged mandate. For lecturers in the area, there is also competency-based education and training, acknowledgment of earlier learning interventions, and the introduction of new courses, giving them the skills required for new technology, according to Dr. Tarno.

Legal Notice 123, which established the college as Kenya School of Tvet on June 20, 2022, served as the catalyst for the rebranding.

On June 15, 2022, it was signed by George Magoha, then-Education Cabinet Secretary.

A postgraduate program for Tvet trainers, the college has roughly 5,000 students enrolled in the diploma in technical trainer in education program.

Its original name, Kenya Technical Teachers College, was used to train teachers for technical secondary schools.

According to Dr. Tarno, Kenya School of Tvet will soon launch intense short courses in cybersecurity for teachers and trainers in Tvets and schools.

The college will collaborate with recognized universities to offer programs leading to the award of an undergraduate degree in Technical and Vocational Education and Training.

 Tvet CDACC courses

Meanwhile, Tvet Principal Secretary Esther Thaara Muoria has overturned a Tveta directive suspending the licensing of training and courses by the Tvet Curriculum Development Assessment and Certification Council (Tvet CDACC).

In the Tvet CDACC courses that Prof. Magoha prohibited, institutions are now allowed to admit trainees.

Dr. Muoria stated that Tveta and the Kenya National Qualifications Authority will enable the accreditation of CBET courses.

Principals of national polytechnics, the Kenya School of Tvet, institutes of technology, institutions of technical training, and vocational and technical colleges are all included in the circular dated December 28, 2022.

The chairperson of Kenya National Association of Private Colleges, the director of University Tvet Institutes, and the chairperson of Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions were also copied on the email.

Prof. Magoha gave its powers to the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development and the Kenya National Examinations Council on May 19, 2022.

On September 12, 2022, Tveta Chief Executive Kipkirui Langat sent out a circular to stop all Tvet CDACC courses.
