Recruitment Advert For 2000 TVET Trainers. The much-anticipated recruitment of 2,000 new trainers to be placed in various technical and vocational education and training institutions across the country is now scheduled for this week.
Sources revealed that the recruitment advertisement will be released on Wednesday, January 31, 2024 for candidates to apply.
On Saturday, when President William Ruto opened the Mitunguu Technical Training Institute in Meru, South Imenti, he disclosed that the recruitment of lecturers will start this week.
He admitted that some TVETs across the country are still facing the problem of understaffing, forcing the boards to pay for their salaries.
“We want to shoulder that burden as a government so these boards can focus on making sure students are well trained,” he said.
“Next week (this week) we will be recruiting lecturers to support education in our TVETs as we believe that a student must have access to adequate learning materials and staff to acquire the competencies necessary for them. get certificates and continue working in the ecosystems we are building in the country,” Ruto stated.
Ruto first unveiled the plan during the Mashujaa Day celebrations in October last year, noting that it would help boost the TVET education sector.
