BY DPPS,BUNGOMA,17TH DEC 2019-Deputy President William Ruto has called for a paradigm shift in career choices among the youth, a move he said would reduce unemployment.
He urged Kenyans to embrace Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to acquire the much-needed technical skills in the implementation of the country’s transformation agenda.
He pointed out the Government’s Big Four agenda as one of the programmes that will create thousands of jobs for youth with technical skills.
“The best way to ensure youths have jobs is to ensure we have programmes that can create jobs and at the same time have a plan to prepare youth to be able to do the jobs that will be created,” he said.
Dr Ruto spoke on Tuesday in Tongaren, Bungoma County, during a career guidance programme where over 10,000 students from the county enrolled to various TTIs in the country.
Ruto said the Jubilee government is counting on the techinical skills impacted on the youth to deliver on the big four Agenda.”Our deliberate investment in Technical Training Institutes will be a game-changer in the transformation agenda of our country, especially through the implementation of the Big Four Agenda”he said.
