The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) and the German Corporation for International Development (GIZ) have launched a Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) project. The project will impart technical skills to Kenyan youth and thereafter help them to take get internships to gain experience and upgrade their skills.
There is an increasing demand for skilled workers in industries in Kenya with demand for improved quality of goods and services that meet international investor standards. The project will address the need for review of the technical and vocational curriculum and consequently improve job productivity in the country.
Mutsimoto Company Ltd., Capwell Industries, Kevian Kenya, Mabati Rolling Mills, Osho Chemicals and East African Cables have committed to take up interns from the project.
