EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, Technical education is necessary if Kenya is to achieve vision 2030 Relevant skills have to.
be given in Technical training institutions Kenya s vision 2030 blueprint envisages a country. that has achieved middle income status supported by five key sectors of the economy. including the Construction Industry, In manufacturing the blueprint envisages a newly industrialized country powered by a high. skilled workforce To get a skilled manpower there has to be world class training and that is. where the problem lies To be industrialized Kenya needs people with technical skills This. mapping exercise focused on the capacity of training institutions relevance of the facilities. and relevance of curriculum course to the construction industry and the qualifications of the. The specific objectives of the mapping were to establish the number of training institutions. their geographical distribution ownership status and their capacity The findings would be. used to develop training and capacity building interventions and policies Secondary database. from Ministry of Education and National Industrial Training Authority was used to first. identify names of institutions to be mapped out Self administered questionnaires were. adopted as source of data In addition face to face Interviews were made during due. diligence visits to validate the information filled in the questionnaire 438 technical. institutions were identified prior to the mapping exercise and 353 of them responded. positively to the exercise hence the response rate was 81 The training institutions that. responded to the exercise spread over 34 counties representing 72 of national coverage. Findings revealed that Kakamega County had the highest number of institutions 33. representing 9 3 Homa Bay Kirinyaga Murang a Nyandarua Isiolo Nyamira and West. Pokot Counties had 1 institution each representing 0 3 of the total number of institutions. 95 8 of the institutions were fully registered with relevant bodies while 4 2 had no. registration details Majority of the institutions were registered by Ministry of Youth Affairs. and Sports 36 most of which were from Western and Lower Eastern region In terms of. ownership 24 of the institutions were privately owned while 76 were public entities. Majority of the institutions were funded through tuition fees paid by the students 38 4. while a smaller proportion were subsidized by their respective county governments. 6 County governments which subsidized their technical training institutions were Nairobi. 1 institution Kakamega 21 institutions Machakos 5 institutions Nakuru 4 institutions. and Vihiga 7 institutions, 1 Mapping of Technical Training Institutions In Kenya. Further findings revealed that Masonry Carpentry Joinery and Electrical installation were the. prevalent courses at Certificate Artisan and Trade test levels It is also important to note that. Electrical installation was offered by technical institutes at all levels Considering the level of. enrollment most students taking construction worker level courses Artisan Certificate. Craft Trade test were enrolled in Electrical installation course 5433 which represents. 22 9 of the total enrollment Similarly for construction site supervisor level courses. Diploma Higher Diploma and Degree most students were enrolled to electrical installation. 1005 which represents 22 of the total enrollment in construction site supervisor level. courses 33 institutions 9 3 had some of their courses discontinued due to various reasons. such as lack of training instructors shortage of machines in the workshops and low student. turn out 89 5 of the institutions had workshops and of these 59 8 had their workshops. equipped with enough machines The total number of trainees in the institutions which. responded as at time when the exercise was conducted was 30 397 and the total number of. graduates in the last 5 years in all the institutions was 76 494 Therefore the course. completion rate among the trainees was 0 5050 This implies that assuming all the trainees. were to be enrolled at the same time then only 50 5 of them would to complete their. respective courses, Cumulatively all the institutions had 2047 training instructors Majority of the instructors. 29 4 had Diplomas as their primary qualification and only 43 of them had additional. qualifications in training Also 36 of the trainers had between 6 and 10 years of experience. in the teaching industry while only 9 had over 20 years of experience in teaching Out of. the 353 training institutions 326 92 had industrial attachment requirements in their. respective courses It is therefore important to ensure that they embrace the need for. industrial attachment provision in order to assess the level of skills acquired by the learners. before they join the construction industry, The fundamental justification for the mapping exercise was to identify the sector skill gaps to. expand vocational education in order to increase the training opportunities for the increasing. school leavers and enrich the school curriculum with technical subjects It was concluded that. the existing technical institutions in Kenya suffer from critical problems including the decline. of quality occasioned by low trainer competencies and lack of training equipment lack of. relevance to occupational and social realities under enrolment and under funding This. shows that in order for Kenya to have a bright future in the construction industry the. importance of skills and adequate training in the technical training institutions need to be. over emphasized in order to cope with the evolving technological world Based on the. findings there is need to ensure that the training institutions curriculum reflects the skills. needed in the construction sector labour market, 2 Mapping of Technical Training Institutions in Kenya.
1 0 INTRODUCTION, There is need to expand vocational education in order to increase the training opportunities. for the increasing school leavers and lastly the need to enrich the school curriculum with. technical subjects The National Construction Authority under the National Construction. Authority Act 2011 section 5 is mandated to initiate and maintain a construction industry. information system as well as provide promote review and coordinate training programs. organized by public and private accredited training centers for skilled construction workers. and construction supervisors Consequently the Authority set out to map training institutions. that offer construction related courses to form part of the Authority s construction. information system as well as identifying the potential institutions with which the Authority. would carry out its training and capacity building program. Following the preliminary mapping of technical training institutions towards the end of 2014. a detailed research was conducted to collect information to aid the Authority to formulate an. elaborate action plan to implement in collaboration with the technical institutions The. Authority embarked on a fact finding mission covering the institutions which fall within the. jurisdiction of the Regional Offices, This document presents the findings of a mapping exercise conducted in September 2015. aimed at mapping the training institutions in various regions offering construction related. training and skills as well as assessing their current status and adequacy The status survey. focused on number of institutions their mode of ownership public or private registrations. status technical courses offered and infrastructural capacity The mapping exercise carried. out by the National Construction Authority NCA was set out to gather information on the. registered training institutions to form part of the Authority s construction information. system as well as identifying the potential institutions with which the authority would carry. out its training and capacity building mandate,1 1 Justification for the Mapping Exercise. Technical education is necessary if Kenya is to industrialize by the year 2030 Relevant skills. have to be given in Technical training institutions This mapping exercise focused on the. adequacy of training facilities relevance of facilities and relevance of curriculum course. relevance to the construction industry and the trainers level of qualifications To steer the. exercise The National Construction Authority Board of Directors gave the directive to come. up with instruments of the mapping exercise which was subjected to various consultative. processes including a piloting exercise, 3 Mapping of Technical Training Institutions in Kenya. 1 2 Objectives, The following were some of the objectives of conducting the mapping exercise.
a To identify the number of training institutions their geographical spread mode of. ownership and their current capacity against which training and capacity building. interventions and policies can be based, b To identify sector skill gaps with respect to trainer competences required and how. many are needed, c To provide prioritized recommendations and an action plan that the Authority and. other key stakeholders should undertake to address any identified gaps. d To provide timely and reliable data to assist the Authority to institute and plan future. training needs,e To formulate a means of accreditation. 1 3 Situation Analysis, Kenya s vision 2030 blueprint envisages a country that has achieved middle income status. supported by five key sectors of the economy including the Construction Industry In. manufacturing the blueprint envisages a newly industrialized country powered by a high. skilled workforce To get a skilled manpower there has to be world class training and that is. where the problem lies, 4 Mapping of Technical Training Institutions in Kenya.
