Training of ‘old’ trainers on new curriculum to start November

By Michael Chepkwony | August 3rd 2019 at 00:00:00 GMT +0300

Past trainers not proficient in the new Competence Based Education and Training (CBET) will be retrained to meet standards of the Technical and Vocation Education and Training (TVET).

Plans are underway with the Kenya Technical Trainers College (KTTC) announcing that the retooling of the trainers will start on November 4 this year.

The training will see 84 trainers undergo the exercise at a time.

The aim of retraining the old trainers is to ensure they disseminate technical and vocational knowledge in line with the competency-based system in place.

Yesterday, during the 40th graduation at the KTTC, College Principal Hildah Omwoyo said her institution was in its final stages in development of the new curriculum (CBET).

“Our focus is to ensure full implementation of CBET. We want to make KTTC the heart of trainers and sharpen skills of trainees in the field,” said Mrs Omwoyo.

Principal Secretary in the State Department of Vocational and Technical Education Kevit Desai, who was the chief guest at the event, said the Ministry of Education will hire about 3,000 new trainers to curb the shortage.

This was after the principal raised concern that the realisation of the new curriculum was straining the human resource and physical assessment.

Dr Desai said the government will support enhanced training to ensure TVET achieves standards that can impact productivity.

The PS said the challenges of infrastructure especially shortage of hostels in KTTC for trainers should be addressed by encouraging public-private partnership.

“Let us work together, support development and realisation of the new CBET curriculum,” said Desai.
