Government Requested to Equip TVET Facilities Due to Tutors’ Scarcity
Government Requested to Equip TVET Facilities Due to Tutors’ Scarcity. A severe teacher scarcity in Trans Nzoia County is impeding the delivery of high-quality training at Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) institutes.
The county women’s representative Lilian Siyoi, who was in Kitale on Tuesday, claimed that the educational facilities are underutilized and urged the government to send more teachers to the facilities because they had drawn more students as a result of the government’s TVET enrollment policy.
According to Siyoi, the county is home to over thirty educational facilities, including the Kitale National Polytechnic, although the bulk of them are understaffed and underequipped.
“Our county is home to one national polytechnic and more than thirty technical and vocational training facilities.
She urged the government, through the appropriate authorities, to hire instructors. “The majority of these institutions are suffering from an acute lack of instructors, delaying the delivery of excellent instruction to our youth who have enrolled in significant numbers, she added.
“Our greatest downfall is a lack of tutors,” she continued, “since the majority of our youth have grasped the value of practical skills and have registered in significant numbers to learn the necessary skills.
The Women MP urged kids to enroll in institutions at the same time, claiming that due to rising population, the trend in labor practices has changed from white collar occupations to skill-based driven economies.
Regarding funding for training facilities, the legislator suggested that the government should upgrade the facilities in the institutions to promote training.
