Vocational Training Centers Decry Low Enrolment

The principal of Ndere Vocational and Training Centres, Raphael Owuoth Nyadenge has decried a low number of enrolments seen by the VTCs across the country.

Nyadenge attributed the negative impact on one hundred percent transition policy which requires all primary school candidates to proceed to secondary schools.

Nyadenge further stated that VTCs are now forced to come up with strategies to upgrade their courses so as to attract form four leavers since class eight dropouts are now becoming scarce.

Addressing the media after a funds drive to construct a food science laboratory at the institution that is in Gem sub-county, Nyadenge cited his institution which recorded a drop in the number of students who registered for different courses in the year 2020 as opposed to previous years when the number kept on rising annually.

The principal at the same time called on parents and students to join VTCs where training stress practical instead of theory, saying that VTC graduates leave the colleges well suited for the labor market.

"VTC performance is better when practicals are prioritized than theory we concentrate on practical more than theory," he said, adding that, "some students and parents consider renown polytechnics and technical institutes over VCTs instead of performance which misleads them'.
