Sh4.5 billion Modern College To Be Constructed As Govt Is Set To Relocate KTTC  From Gigiri

Sh4.5 billion Modern College To Be Constructed As Govt Is Set To Relocate KTTC From Gigiri.
A principal secretary has stated that the relocation of Gigiri in Nairobi to Ngong’ will not disrupt its operations.
Margaret Mwakima, the PS for Vocational and Technical Training, stated that the relocation of KTTC to make way for the establishment of an exclusive diplomatic enclave will be done in a three-year phased plan to ensure a smooth transition for technical trainers.
According to Dr Mwakima, the government plans to build a modern college at a cost of Sh4.5 billion.
Dr Mwakima said yesterday, as she closed a five-day capacity building workshop for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Tvet) principals, deputy principals, directors, industrial liaison and quality assurance officers, that the Ministry of Education was in the process of acquiring a title deed for the 100-acre site identified for the new KTTC.
“I urge you to support the relocation of KTTC from Gigiri to Ngong’. We will have a state-of-the-art institution. It will be built in phases and training programmes will not be interfered with,” she assured.
She noted that Kenya is a signatory to the Vienna Convention, which requires nations to identify an area with proper security, good infrastructure, and proper setup to be reserved for diplomatic missions.
She stated that Gigiri has been reserved for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and United Nations Human Settlement, as well as the US Embassy and other diplomatic missions, and thus KTTC must relocate.
Glory Mutungi, the chairperson of the Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions (Katti), stated that Tvet institutions require qualified internal auditors.
“There is an urgent need for structures in Tvet institutions. We are happy that you have given us assurance that this is being worked out. The only way for this department to grow is to have structures in place. Our prayer is that we will one day have our own ministry,” said Ms Mutungi.
Dr. Mwakima requested that technical institutions collaborate with private firms to establish industries and other projects as part of public-private partnership initiatives in order to generate their own income.
According to the PS, principals of technical institutions are permitted by law to seek partnerships and mobilize funds within the framework of the law.
“You should start income-generating activities. Some Tvet institutions have large tracts of land and can create industries through partnerships. There is a lot of goodwill,” she noted.
She stated that, despite the fact that technical trainers’ career progression has been stalled for the past four years due to their transfer from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to the Public Service Commission (PSC), the institutions are now stable.

She also promised to meet with the PSC on Tuesday next week to resolve the issues that have stymied the career advancement of the technical tutors who were relocated in July 2018.
