More than 190,000 students have enrolled in Technical and Vocational Education Training institutions since the introduction of capitation for learners.

Vocational and Technical Training PS Kevit Desai has also disclosed that a cluster of TVET institutions is being developed to incorporate hitherto unexploited talents.

Desai spoke at the weekend after inspecting the construction of the Sh40 million Moyale Technical Training Institute.

He said technical training institutions will be upgraded to meet the industrial needs of the country and create jobs.
