SEARCH FOR SPECIALISTS IN DAIRY PROCESSING – DEVELOPMENT AND DELIVERY OF A TRAINING ON DAIRY PROCESSING EQUIPMENT IN NYERI, NYERI COUNTY, KENYA.
The Kenya Education for Employment Program (KEFEP), an Education for Employment (EFE) program of Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) working in collaboration with the Kenyan Ministry of Education (MOE) will support Kenya in the revitalization of the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system, which has historically run on low capacity and minimal interest from potential students.
KEFEP is a five-year (2016-2021) program funded by Global Affairs Canada. The program will work at the national level with the Directorate for TVET of the MOE and at the institutional level with the ten national polytechnics across Kenya. It will also engage industry stakeholders in the identification of skills gaps, the development of relevant occupational standards and curricula, and the improvement of training facilities to improve the capacity of Kenyan institutions and agencies to implement TVET reform initiatives; increase the effectiveness of partner institutions to deliver industry-responsive skills training; and strengthen the quality of industry-responsive skills training programs.
KEFEP’s ultimate outcome is to provide increased economic opportunities for male and female graduates from TVET institutions in Kenya.
The three intermediate program results are:
Improved quality and relevance of skills training programs at partner institutions
Increased effectiveness of partner institutions in delivering accessible and gender responsive skills training programs that meet private sector needs to trainees
Increased effectiveness of national Kenyan agencies in implementing TVET reform
