TVET Graduates Challenged To Utilize Free Labour Market.
Graduates of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) have been challenged to use the free international labor movement to export their skills to new markets.
Dr Margaret Mwakima, Principal Secretary in the State Department of Vocational and Technical Training (VTT), stated during the first graduation ceremony for Baringo Technical College that the entire East African Community, for example, has initiated a free movement where TVET graduates can capitalize on the various opportunities that are available.
According to Mwakima, the labor market in vocational and technical fields is remitting to home counties and contributing to social and economic development.
She stated that this opportunity, in conjunction with a prior learning policy framework that her department plans to implement soon, will result in skilled practitioners receiving international recognition in their line of duty.
“Graduands go out there and take advantage of what the government has invested for your own posterity,” she said.
Mwakima also urged all TVET principals and boards of management to plan for ways to ensure that their institutions are well branded in order to attract more students willing to pursue market-oriented courses that are useful in a time when white collar jobs are scarce.
She stated that the dignity of TVET institutions must be restored through collaborations with other stakeholders in order for learners to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to compete in an ever-changing market.
In his remarks, Baringo County Commissioner Abdirisack Jaldesa emphasized the importance of technical skills, stating that the sector is rich in comparison to the increasingly scarce white collar jobs.
Jaldesa stated that technical skills are critical as the country continues to implement flagship projects and programs as part of the Vision 2030 strategy.
According to Chief Principal Josphat Kipkemboi, his institution, which was founded in 1985, has experienced tremendous growth, with a current student population of 3,031 enrolled in 54 academic programs.
Kipkemboi stated that the college is proud of its first 975 graduates who completed diploma and certificate courses in various technical fields.
He urged graduates entering the job market at a time when the world is facing global economic challenges to invest in their personal development by identifying opportunities for change.
VTT Secretary Administration David Kipkemei requested at least one mega flagship project to expand the institution established by the late former President Daniel Arap Moi.

The PS for Vocational Technical Training commissioned the college’s new medical facility, which will greatly improve access to health services, during the ceremony, which was also attended by Technical Education director Tom Mulati.
