Accredited colleges in Kenya

Students who don’t qualify for university can still establish a brilliant career by taking any of the marketable diploma courses in Kenya at any of the accredited colleges in Kenya.

This is especially an attractive option considering that the government has slowly shifted focus to technical training (rather than University education) as a result of crisis-level unemployment among the Kenyan youth.

Part of the reasons behind the states aggressive push towards technical education is because most of the white color courses are massively flooded. Of course the government has also realized that it’s difficult to attain Kenya’s vision 2030 without the right skills.

This means that the future is bright for students who are willing to put a shift in their studies provided that you choose a good course.

Now, whatever the course, ensure that you pursue it in one of the best accredited colleges in Kenya.

Advantages Of Taking Your Studies At An Accredited College

There are thousands of colleges in Kenya and truth be told, some of them are pretty affordable in terms of tuition fees and other charges. In addition, some are conveniently located in your neighborhood meaning you can study from home saving on hostels costs and related expenses.

Unfortunately, the ministry of education doesn’t recognize certificates issued by such i vocational training centres in Kenya so it could be hard to secure a job after studies.

Besides getting an endorsed certificate, studying in any of the recognised technical institutions in Kenya will ensure you get quality education as these colleges have all the essential facilities to deliver.

Then, it’s easier to get an attachment for students learning in any of these colleges compared to learners from unrecognized institutions.

Perhaps the greatest one is that the government only issues financial assistance through HELB to trainees attached to accredited colleges in Kenya

Before I present to you the list of accredited TVET institutions in Kenya that have met the threshold required to be accredited, let’s look at some of the basics…

So, What Is an Accredited College?

An accredited college is simply an institution that has satisfied all the ministry of education standards requirements to offer higher education training in the country.

This includes having the right and sufficient facilities such as labs, lecture halls, library, machines, and computers. Accredited colleges also have qualified and adequate lecturers, great management, and a conducive learning environment.

Who Accredits Colleges in Kenya?

As I mentioned, an accreditation license is issued by the ministry of education through its higher education department better known as the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA).

So it’s TVETA that inspects and licenses all accredited colleges in Kenya after a thorough audit.

Accredited colleges in Kenya: Updated List

Allow me to take you through the list of some of the accredited TVET institutions in Kenya including a significant number rated among the best colleges in Kenya.

Accredits Colleges in Kenya: FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What is TVET in Kenya?

As i hinted earlier on in this article, TVET means (Technical And Vocational Educational Training) so TVET is the branch of skill based education that deals with the professional manpower training for the Kenyan industrial and entrepreneurial needs.

I had also mentioned that there is a whole authority (TVETA) charged with the responsibility of seeing that technical and vocational training programs in Kenya are properly conducted and aligned to international standards.

Colleges can also seek other accreditations such as from NITA (National Industrial Training Authority) depending on the programs they are offering so you may also hear of NITA accredited institutions and even NASCOP accredited institutions (for institutions offering National AIDS and STD Control Programme courses).

Q: What is a TVET program?

A TVET program is any short term or long-term training course that is targeted at imparting skills and competencies required in a certain field such as engineering, hospitality, or even infrastructural development.

All TVET programs offered by the various TVETA accredited colleges are first verified for relevancy and competence by the TVETA authority.

Q: What is TVETA?

As I have repeatedly said, TVETA (Technical And Vocational Educational Training Authority) is a government corporation in charge of coordinating and regulating TVET training in Kenya. TVETA does this by registering, licensing, and accrediting institutions, TVET programs, and trainers as per the specifications of the Kenya’s TVET national quality and assurance system.

TVETA Contacts:

Utalii House, Utalii Street, 8th Floor, Nairobi.
P. O. Box 35625, Nairobi – 00100.
Telephone contact: +254 20 2392140

Q: What Is Technical Education And Vocational Training?

Technical Education and vocational Training is all about giving schools leavers and other interested parties skills required to thrive as technical workers, technicians, assistants, and in general as skilled experts in chosen areas.

TVET education covers labour training in everything from manufacturing, service, building and construction, automation, and all the way to fashion and design.
