Best accredited TVET courses and institutions in Kenya in 2023

Best accredited TVET courses and institutions in Kenya in 2023

TVETA began in 2013 through the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority Act that was aimed at delivering a competitive workforce relevant to the Kenyan market. 

The institution oversees the registration, licensing, development, and accreditation of institutions.

It certifies trainers and develops the curriculum in conjunction with CDACC. 

TVET Authority stresses the accountability and professionalism of its members while ensuring integrity, teamwork, and public participation. 

Previously, there was no mention of the term ‘vocational’ in the list of courses administered by training institutions in Kenya.

Some must be wondering what vocational training means and if it is any different from technical training.

Difference Between Technical Training and Vocational Training

Technical training focuses on a particular skill while vocational training includes training of the complete skills needed for a particular job.

For example, if you learn pipe laying, you will have acquired technical skills.

You can work as a plumber, but your skills will be limited to pipe laying. 

On the other hand, in Vocational training, you are taught all aspects of plumbing, both theoretical and practical to enable you to make informed calculations, and know-how to lay pipes, among other practical skills.
