The County Government of Uasin Gishu is constructing and equipping Vocational Training Centres with an objective of imparting technical skills to the youth.
Already, a total of 11 Vocational Training Centres have been established across the county, with the County Government investing in equipping the youth with hands-on skills marketable in the labour market.
County Executive for Education and Youth, Joseph Kurgat inspected the construction of a workshop at Eldoret Vocational Training Centre on Tuesday and was pleased with the works so far.
"This will change the dynamics and by providing both formal and non-formal education, the institution is ready to produce a qualified pool of young people ready to take up employment in the job market,” said Kurgat.
Chief Officer for Sports and Youth Affairs, Joseph Maritim noted that equipping of the garment production workshop has already started.
“We have started equipping the workshop with sewing machines and increase in enrollment is attributed to infrastructural improvements that has changed the face of the centre," said Maritim.
Director for Public Works, Freddrick Towett, indicated that the unit was constructed in line with the requirements provided in the Bill of Quantities and that the contractor will be able to complete the works within the contract period.
“The project is noteworthy, it is 99 per cent complete and is set for hand over early next week,” said Towett.
