Case Study of TVET in Kenya
UNESCO-UNEVOC has published the first volume in the series of Case Studies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Selected Countries. The Case Study of Kaiboi Technical Training Institute in Eldoret, Kenya provides insight into the development of this TVET institution from an originally stagnant and weak school to a prosperous and well-functioning establishment. The study highlights the different steps undertaken by the institute’s management to increase the efficiency and effective running of the school, its enrolment rates, teacher morale and student achievement and satisfaction. The study specifically focuses on the role of the institutional manager as a strong figure in achieving these goals.
This paper appears as the first volume in the series entitled UNESCO-UNEVOC Case Studies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Selected Countries, which is part of the UNEVOC International Library of TVET – an extensive publications programme prepared by the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre. The Case Studies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Selected Countries provide in-depth information on issues of specific importance in the TVET systems of selected countries and regions. Through the case studies it is intended to build a pool of resources and tools of what works in TVET as part of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre’s clearinghouse.
