Entrepreneurship Education as a Tool to Support Self-Employment in Kenya

English | Français

In recent years, flexibility, adaptability and lifelong learning have become major objectives of best practice, in addition to employability. The notion of “Best practice” was introduced in TVET institutions in Kenya in 1994 and continued to this day because there is a pool of qualified personnel to sustain the programme. Many TVET graduates become self-employed and apply the entrepreneurial skills they have acquired in technical training institutions in their businesses. The response of TVET institutions in Kenya to the continued training needs of business aligns training closer to the demands of the labour market. Kenya has a well-established system of involving enterprises in establishing the content of training, which makes it possible to train young people more effectively for the workplace.
