Vocational training centres should specialize in one trade in order to produce competent graduates that meet market demands.
Ahero Vocational training center Manager Martin Owino said the move
will address the issue of institutions offering several courses but with less qualified trainers and capacity to implement the curriculum.
“We need to have centres of excellence in these institutions that are known to offer courses in specific field e.g. Agribusiness or Motor Vehicle mechanics,” he said.
He said the 22 training centres in the region should have modern workshop equipment to meet the set standards and realize industrialization by 2030.
Speaking in his offices Friday in Ahero town, he appealed to Kisumu County government to embrace the move and spearhead it for the betterment of populace.
He also advised those artisans who had trained in respective technical courses to register with government to be accredited and perform their duties professionally.
“You need to be registered and accredited in order to perform your duties professionally. Please visit us so that we can guide and help you,” he said.
