KENAPCO RECOMMENDS THAT:
a) TVET Curriculum Development, Assessment, and Certification Council (TVET CDACC) should remain under TVETA and be funded adequately to offer CBET Assessments
- That TVETA be the sole Authority to inspect, license, register, and accredit TVET institutions.For the avoidance of doubt, the Authority should be the only body with the power to perform the functions set out in section 7(1) of the TVET Act 2013.
- The law should be amended such that a person who without the power of the Authority under the Act purports to license, accredit, recognize, audit, inspect, index students or collect a fee or a charge from a TVET College or a student commits an offense and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding two million shillings or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or bothlike it is the case with the Universities Act, 2012.
- TVETA should drop charging the Annualquality assurance fee of KShs 500 per student enrolled. This is because the authority is funded by the state department of TVET. Institutions have passed the same to students making access difficult.
- The Ministry of Education Science and Technology should ensure that HELBloans are extended to all students including those studying in private colleges
