KAM, GIZ launch TVET Programme in Central Kenya

Programme to provide technical jobs and economic opportunities for youth 

Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) in partnership with German Corporation for International Development (GIZ) have today launched the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programme in Central Kenya as part of the organization’s goal to bridge the skills gap in the country.

Since the launch of the programme in Nairobi and Mombasa early in the year, KAM has worked with TVET institutions and Industry to place 180 technical skills graduates in various companies in Nairobi and Mombasa and trained an additional 170 graduates on work readiness in preparation for industrial placement.

Speaking in Thika, the Kiambu County TVET Deputy Director, Mr. Wilfred Nyarangi pointed out that partnership between TVET institutions and industry are key in offering skills relevant to the labour market.

Human capital investment is key to Kenya’s transition. The TVET policy is focusing on providing skills that meet the workplace. There is a great need for enhanced cooperation between industry and technical institutions,” said Mr. Nyarangi.

KAM Central Chapter Chair, Mr. Anup Bid challenged TVET institutions to create programs that are relevant and in touch with the needs of the industries.

Industries are investing in advanced machinery, but facing serious challenges in accessing matching skilled labor to operate the machines. KAM is committed to addressing the gap in the system by working together with technical training institutions and the manufacturing industries in ensuring that skills’ training is demand driven.

I’m glad to note that over 25 industries in the central region have committed to take up interns and upgrade employees’ technical skills. We will also place over 60 graduates in industries in the central region by July 2017,” added Mr. Bid.

GIZ Technical Advisor – Kenya, Dr. Henrik Schmidtke expressed his support to the project. “GIZ is committed towards technical skills development in kenya. We endeavour to work with industries and technical institutions to ensure that technical skills are appreciated.,” added Dr. Henrik Schmidtke.
