The Kenyan government has issued a directive for all vocational training institutions (TVETs) to phase out business courses and increase enrollment in science, engineering, and math (STEM) courses within the next three years.

According to a circular from Cabinet Secretary Hon. Ezekiel Machogu, dated December 23, 2022, TVETs are expected to develop a plan for how they will transition to this new focus and present a report detailing their progress by January 6, 2023.

The government’s decision is aimed at ensuring that resources invested in these institutions are used effectively and that the country derives value for money. By shifting to a focus on STEM courses, the government hopes to better prepare students for the workforce and drive economic growth. This move comes as the Kenyan government has made a push to prioritize science, technology, engineering, and math education in recent years.

TVETs have a crucial role to play in Kenya’s education system and economy, as they provide important vocational training and skills development for students. It remains to be seen how these institutions respond to the government’s directive and what impact it will have on their operations and the courses they offer.
