"From 41 TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) institutions in the country in 2013, the government has built 152 new technical training institutions with the ultimate aim of building at least one TVET per constituency. This has seen the training opportunities in TVETs increase to 145,405 and the number is growing as they get equipped. Thirty two TVETs are already equipped with the rest currently ongoing,” - President’s Delivery Unit.

Did the Jubilee government add 152 new technical training institutions from 41 in 2013?

To find out, Nation Newsplex consulted published government statistics and sought comment from the Department of Technical Vocational Education and Training in the Ministry of Education.

Technical training institutions are only one category of TVET institutions, the others being vocational training centres (formerly youth polytechnics) and national polytechnics.
