Our education system has prioritised examinations and assessment scores over comprehensive learning of diverse disciplines.
The devaluing of so-called blue collar jobs in Kenya has become a mentality borne out of a contorted notion of the education’s function in the society.
Further to this, perceptions of boring old machines, dirty greasy overalls and smoke-filled factories have been sustained over time by more than just a rigid education system.
More so, politics of national investments, value placed by corporates on college degrees, prestige bestowed upon white collar jobs, have all greatly contributed to these myths.
This is where TVET authority comes in.
What is TVETA?
The Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA) is a corporate body that regulates the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
As a state corporation in the Ministry of Education, TVETA was established under the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority Act in the year 2013.
The authority aims at delivering a labour market relevant and competent workforce through registration, licensing, accreditation and development of institutions, programs, and trainers.
In order for the authority to effectively carry out its functions of regulating, promoting and developing TVET sector, it emphasizes on integrity, professionalism, accountability, public participation, and teamwork as the core values that guide the delivery of its work.
Services offered by TVETA
TVETA offers services such as accreditation of institutions, trainers, managers of institutions and also new programmes.
The authority also ensures that institutions conform and maintain standards of training set by the board in the areas recommended by the authority.
The authority regulates this sector through licensing, registration and accreditation of institutions, programs, and trainers.
The authority is also mandated to conduct assessment and examination of Certificate or Diploma, or any skills, knowledge, and qualifications acquired from any institution, local or foreign, to determine the extent to which it conforms to the established standards and guidelines.

Therefore, if you want to enrol for any of the TVET courses, just contact your nearest institution for inquiries.
