Dressed to Impress: Kenya’s TVET Students to Wear Uniforms


Uniforms for All: TVETs Across Kenya Get a Makeover!

The Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector in Kenya is getting a major overhaul as the Principal Secretary, Muoria, announces plans to introduce uniforms for students at all TVETs in the country. Discussions are currently underway to select the perfect shade and design that will bring all the learners together as one.

“We’re picking colors so we can work together because the graduates coming out of these institutions are one,” said Muoria, speaking at the Baringo Technical College.

According to the PS, this move is aimed at improving education standards in higher learning institutions across the country, and once approved, students will join the ranks of students at other institutions like Kenya Medical Training College who already have uniforms.

Baringo governor, Benjamin Cheboi, expressed his support for the government’s move to establish TVETs in every county. “Most of the marketable jobs require technical skills and there is a need to support the sector so that they can produce very competitive people,” he said.

As for the over 700,000 candidates who failed to secure the minimum university entry mark of C+ (plus) in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary School Education (KCSE), the Education Cabinet Secretary, Ezekiel Machogu, has assured them that they will all be placed in higher institutions of learning, including TVETs.

“I direct the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service to move quickly and determine the number of places available in our universities, colleges, and TVET institutions so we can start the placement process immediately,” said Machogu.

So, grab your colored pencils, students, and get ready to color-coordinate with your classmates!
