Impact Of Flexible Skills Development On Quality Delivery At Mombasa Technical Training Institute, Kenya
The general objective of this study was to identify the impact of flexible skills development on quality delivery and challenges that the MoTTI fraternity faces in delivering employable skills and sustainable solutions. It takes a multidimensional approach at the impact of flexible skills development and identifies the role that TVET plays in providing programmes that would enhance production and development of skills to meet the requirements of the ‘Kenyan employer’. It also looks at the formal curriculum with the purpose of identifying ways of delivering it in a more flexible approach and without compromising the quality offered. The study recognizes skills development as an important vehicle and a strategy for job creation and improving livelihoods for economic independence of the general public. The study recognizes the concept of flexible skill development as a means by which empowerment is acquired as it identifies that unemployment problems are due to lack of proper or needed skills that drive the economy. Lack of employable skills has been identified as being responsible for the increased poverty, lower GDP in a country among many other challenges being experienced in many parts of Africa, including Kenya. The TVET bill 2012 which provides a clear government strategy on the reforms required for this sector to become an economic driver has been examined. Information gathered and the recommendations thereof will help to improve the delivery of learning in a more flexible way to cater for those who may not have the opportunity to attend the mainstream education system which is more static and at times outdated. // Paper ID: 53
