In a surprising move, the Kenyan government has reversed its decision to suspend TVET CDACC. The original ban had been communicated through a circular issued by the cabinet secretary for education on 12th September 2022.
However, a new circular from the Ministry of Education, dated 28th December 2022, has revoked the previous ban and stated that licensing and training of TVET CDACC courses will continue. Training institutions are now allowed to admit trainees in the already licensed TVET CDACC courses.
This reversal is likely to be welcomed by those who were affected by the ban on TVET CDACC courses. It remains to be seen how the government’s decision will impact the provision of technical and vocational education and training in Kenya.
