Webuye East Sub-County Director of Education Sospeter Were has
challenged youths to take up Technical and Vocation Education and
Training (TVET) courses.
Speaking to this writer,Mr.Were said TVET is recognized as crucial
vehicle for social equity, inclusion and sustainable development.
“Technical Education uses formal, non-formal and informal learning,
thus providing an avenue for those who failed to sit for their KCPE or
KCSE and who obtained weaker grades to use such institutions to
catapult themselves to institutions of higher learning,” he said.
The sub county education director added that no child is a failure.
“Those with or without KCPE certificates or got Grade D+ and below in
KCSE will start with Artisan Certificate courses, Diploma and
eventually proceed to University.Those with Grade C and below in KCSE
can start from Diploma Level while those who score C+ and above in
KCSE gain direct entry to University,” he observed.
Mr.Were said education is for everybody including Back to School for
those who dropped out of school because of one reason or the other,
adding that the National Government has also introduced non formal
system of education where lessons are offered to recipients depending
on the agreed time of the day with their teachers.
He disclosed that the National Government is also offering special
needs education to children with disabilities and education bursary to
both primary pupils and secondary school students, adding that primary
and secondary schools are also getting instructional materials
necessary for effective teaching and learning.
