President William Ruto’s administration has allocated Ksh1.2 billion to the Ministry of Education, specifically designated for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions. This substantial disbursement follows a previous allocation of Ksh31 billion to the Ministry, highlighting the government’s commitment to enhancing the education sector.

“The Government has released Ksh1.192 billion to TVET institutions nationwide, marking a pivotal moment in its commitment to skills development,” a statement from the Ministry of Education revealed.

According to the Ministry, this funding will provide crucial support for tuition, training materials, utilities, and co-curricular activities, fostering an environment conducive to effective learning and skill acquisition.

“This funding ensures that current TVET trainees have ample opportunities for success within and beyond the institution, emphasizing the inclusive principle of training for everyone and leaving no one behind,” the Ministry added.

Additionally, part of the funds will be used to provide financial assistance to individual trainees, empowering aspiring and young professionals in various fields.

The Ksh31 billion allocated earlier is intended to facilitate learning in primary, junior secondary, and secondary schools across the country.
