The government is keen to develop skills and competencies among students in the vocation trainings for the development of a skilled human resource base.
Senior Assistant Director Technical Vocational Education and Training Institutions (TIVET) Stanley Maindi says the government is rolling out Competency Based Education and Training (CBET) framework that will be able to churn out hands-on workers.
Maindi says the labour market is in shortage of required skills thus the need for the government to roll out CBET to produce enough man power for the nation.
Speaking at Kisumu National Polytechnic during the launch of the framework implementation in Western Kenya, Maindi says the aim is to match the labour demand with the trainings.
He announced that all the stakeholders have been brought on board to learn and see the importance of CBET.
Maindi says state department for vocational and technical training has continued to create awareness among the public and institutions with a view of embracing the new curriculum.
