Be Job Creators Instead Of Job Seekers, TVET Graduates Challenged

Be Job Creators Instead Of Job Seekers, TVET Graduates Challenged.
Graduates of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) have been challenged to use their skills to create job opportunities rather than becoming job seekers after finishing their studies.
Before presenting the certificates to the graduating students, ICT and Innovation Secretary of Administration Mrs Lucy Kaguthi, who spoke on behalf of Principal Secretary, State Department of ICT & Innovation, Jerome Ochieng’, emphasized the critical role of TVET in driving Kenya’s industrialization agenda, while highlighting the country’s acute shortage of people with technical skills.
“The government has institutionalized VTCs to catalyze the development of relevant and adequate skills necessary to spur industrial and economic development,” she said.
She emphasized the country’s revamped education system, which aims to equip students with the skills they need to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to a peaceful democratic society, and improve individual well-being.
“I believe today’s graduation for the vocational graduands, you have acquired lifeskills that will make you contribute to the national development and the development of this county,” said Kaguthi.
The senior state official also congratulated the graduates on reaching the milestone, emphasizing the importance of education in combating poverty and inequality in society.

Kisumu County Deputy Governor Mathew Owili attended the inaugural joint graduation ceremony, which brought together graduates from the county’s 26 Vocational Training Centres (VTCs).
Dr. Owili represented Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o at the historic event, which celebrated the graduation of more than 2,259 students from various technical and vocational training programs.
Dr. Owili emphasized in his speech that technical and vocational training prepares young people to be self-employed or to work in key areas of the industry.
“To the graduands, I wish to congratulate you for concentrating on your studies. Now you are out in the field to look for Jobs. You can also become entrepreneurs and create your own jobs.

I want to assure you that with the skills you have acquired, getting jobs may not be such a tall order, just like creating your own jobs should not be a tall order,” said the Deputy Governor.
On Friday, the joint convocation ceremony was held at Kisumu’s Rotary Vocational Training Centre.
