The Hiring Process for 1300 TVET Trainers Begins. The State Department of Technical Vocational Education and Training has begun holding interviews for 1,300 TVET trainers.
The interview process began on Tuesday in 10 stations around the country, according to TVET Principal Secretary Esther Muoria.
Muoria presided over the procedure’s official start at the national polytechnics in Sigalagala and Kisumu.
She asserted that the government’s objective of providing young people with the essential skills will be achieved if the right people are hired.
According to Muoria, the right people must be hired in order to aid in the execution of reforms in our TVET institutions.
I started the procedure by performing spot checks at the Kisumu and Sigalagala National Polytechnics, which held a total of 38 institutions situated in both areas.

The PS urged the panelists to abide by Kenya’s constitution as well as other relevant legal requirements, which establish the standards for a fair, unbiased, and competitive process.
Muoria claimed on May 16 that there is a critical shortage of teachers, with only 5,417 of them currently employed.
She stated that they had received approval from the Public Service Commission to hire 3,000 trainers for Sh1.992 billion for the budget year 2023–2024.
According to Muoria, the State Department was allotted a budget of Sh720 million, leaving a balance of Sh1.27 billion.
She listed the hiring and promotion of trainers as one of the most pressing areas in need of resources, along with equipment shortages in 70 recently completed schools, financing limitations under capitation, and other issues.
She went on to state that Sh15.2 billion would be required for the equipment for completed institutions and Sh2.095 billion for funding technical training.
TVET is also requesting the government to intervene and equip the TVET facilities including solving the tutor’s shortage.
