Technical Education Promotion
The Government of Makueni County has invested heavily in the construction and equipping of County Technical Training Institutes to enable our youth to access technical education. This has attracted our youth who did not make it to the university. In the CTTIs they gain skills and knowledge that is useful in the market place. The improvement of the CTTIs has led to an increase in the student’s enrollment from 2,958 in 2013 to 4,022 in 2017.
The introduction of the CTTIs curriculum development and capitation programme has resulted in improvement in the quality of education in the institutes. There is a plan to link CTTIs to the Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO), marketing opportunities and youth empowerment programmes. This will ensure 16% of our population who are young people participate in building the economy of the County. We anticipate that with time we will be able to offer free CTTI education.
