KUCCPS Artisan Courses, how to choose
KUCCPS Artisan Courses, how to choose.Many young Kenyans who pursue degrees in various fields end up on the list of graduates who are unemployed.
This is a result of the fact that many people seek non-marketable careers. The proportion of graduates who choose the incorrect career route is predicted to rise, highlighting the significance of career counselling.
Even though artisan courses are frequently connected to students who have failed their KCSE exams, they are among the best to pursue in Kenya.

Guidelines on How to Select the Best Artisan Course
Here are some recommendations to assist you in reducing your options and locating a course that most closely matches your professional goals:
Choose a course that appeals to you because doing so will help you enjoy your future career. You’ll be motivated to work hard since you’ll be having fun.
The employment rate
As was already mentioned, taking less employable courses has led to a large number of graduates being unemployed. Before making a choice, first evaluate the market.
As the going gets rougher, students may enroll in courses only to drop them in the second semester. Look into the course material modules to prevent this. Recognize the prerequisites for the course.
Pick a course that is within your budget. It’s really embarrassing to join in a course only to leave early owing to financial issues.
Consider your skills and abilities. You may be aware of your goals, but are you also aware of your strengths? A course that enables you to explore both your interests and your talents should be your choice.
