The Kenyan government through the Technical and Vocational Education and Training authority is implementing the long time, much needed technical education. For decades the Kenyan youth have been suffering from unemployment as a result of the philosophy of white collar jobs, a concept that had been propagated since the colonial days.
However this concept no longer holds. This is due to the fact that the economic dispensations and dynamics have tremendously changed over the years. The white collar jobs are no longer readily available as it were many years ago; neither are they the best-rewarding. This is partly due to the advance of technology and other disciplines which foster the dichotomous nature of technical Education and more often than not comes with a great reward.
By the dichotomous nature of technical training, it means that once the learner acquires the skills in whichever field of study he/she is able to apply them either in formal employment or in self-employment. The fact that learners can employ themselves and even hire others soon after graduating with the diploma or certificate, impacts the economy greatly by considerably reducing the rate of unemployment.
