Enroll Students In TVETs, Residents Told

Residents of Busia County have been urged to embrace Technical and Vocational Education Training.

Speaking during the roadshow in Busia town, Busia CEC Member for Educational and Industrial Skills Development Beatrice Nakholi stated that the move would enable learners to get skills that could help them earn a living.

‘The government is going to give out bursaries to those who cannot afford to pay the fees,’ she said.

She further challenged boda boda operators who operate without driving licenses to take advantage of the institutions and undertake driving courses.

‘If you are a bodaboda operator, this is your time, just go to any of our TVET and register for a course,’ she said.

The official further said that skills and knowledge acquired from TVET would help to speed up the development in the county as there would be an increase in job creation leading to increase i
n revenue generation.

Busia County has seven TVETs in its seven sub counties which include Bumbe, Bunyala, Butula, Okame, Chamasiri, Nambale and Doctor Daniel Wako.
