TVET Director Calls On Coastal Youths to Embrace TVET Education, Urging Government For More Funds

The director of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) at the Technical University of Mombasa, Charles Majani, has called on youths to embrace TVET education to acquire knowledge and skills for employment.

Majani was speaking during a live interview on KBC TV when he acknowledged that youths form the majority of Kenya’s population and therefore it was important they get the skills in TVETs, which will enable them to advance to higher levels of education as well.

“One with the ambition to prosper can rise to a professorship from village polytechnics or TVET,” the director said, adding that joining TVET is like catching three birds with one trap.

On Blue Economy, he noted that it was a preserve prerogative of the e coastal people. He urged residents to join Bandari College and Kenya Maritime Academy to be able to equip themselves with the basic skills needed for the blue economy.

“What TVETs get is paltry peanuts compared to what the government gifts universities,” Majani said while persuading the government to offer more funds, quality equipment, as well as qualified instructors to TVETs.

To him, universities appear to be favoured, yet it is TVETs do a lot in supplying the majority of human resources. He, therefore, wished for the establishment of a full-fledged Ministry of TVET.
