Promising Practices – TVET practices from around the world that have been implemented to address emerging challenges and to contribute to improving TVET teaching and learning in an inclusive way.
In recent years, the Kenyan government, together with several financial institutions, introduced easily accessible funding opportunities for innovative entrepreneurs. Embu College of Professional Studies offers a wide range of technical courses, and if the students have the right guidance and mentorship on how they can capitalize on their technical skills, they can access these funding opportunities to set up their own businesses and become self-employed.
Eight hundred students have completed the training so far. The college plans to organize such trainings every semester so as to cover more entrepreneurial issues and reach a wider number of disadvantaged youths. The college expects that following the entrepreneurial mentorship programme, a large number of youths will start up their own business ventures and become independent through self-employment. The college also plans to have a follow-up programme for those who set up businesses to mentor them whenever necessary.
