Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says the government is working with MPs, Governors, and other leaders in improving tertiary institutions to effectively deliver on their mandate.

Speaking Saturday at Kipipiri Technical and Vocational Training College in Kipipiri Constituency, Nyandarua County, Gachagua urged parents to prioritize Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) for their children, as it presents more self-employment career opportunities.

He said TVETs are a key impetus to imparting key skills for self-employment.

The DP said it was through investments in vocational education that the development needs of the country can be realised.

He urged  Kenyans to acknowledge the fact that young people who are trained at TTI  have the knowledge and technical know-how to create jobs and be self-reliant.

The DP later visited Mawingo Girls Secondary School in the same area where he reiterated the government’s commitment to put the necessary infrastructure in place to support the Competency Based Curriculum.

“Under the Competency Based Curriculum, aligning infrastructure to meet the demands of this system is a major focus of the Kenya Kwanza Administration for quality outcomes,” he said.

“During my visit to Mawingo Girls Secondary School in Kipipiri Constituency, Nyandarua County, this morning – together with the local leaders- we identified areas of improvement on the infrastructure of the institution.

As we replicate this across the country, the CBC system will ultimately contribute to Nation building” he added.

He wished the learners success in the forthcoming national exams to start in the next two weeks.

“It was a joyous moment being with the learners, who showed utmost enthusiasm and commitment to excel in their studies, even as the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education starts soon,” he said.

The DP who is in the county is set to preside over a funds drive at Catholic Archdiocese of Nyahururu for the construction of Bishop Kirima Apartment.
