These skills can be acquired either by getting a Degree Course, a Diploma Course, or a Craft Certificate or an Artisan Certificate depending on the grade that one attained at school.
This afternoon, the Cabinet Secretary of Education Professor George Magoha, has announced that the KUCCPS portal has been officially opened for all students who did their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams to apply for their various degree and diploma courses.
Over 140,000 students attained the minimum university entry grade which is a C+ which will see them join their university of choice to pursue a degree course that the government will partly pay for for the next few years that they will be there.
This afternoon, while speaking at a school in Thika, Kiambu County, the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Proffesor George Magoha, has urged those who attained a minimum University entry to try their luck in Diploma Courses as well.
According to The Daily Nation Newspaper, the Cabinet Secretary has urged the students to look for a good TVET Institution and apply for a diploma course or the Teacher Training Colleges in the country.
Last year saw about 6,000 students who had attained the minimum university entry grade venture into diploma courses and this is what the Cabinet Secretary has encouraged the other learners to do.
