Kenya Technical Teachers College Courses Offered

Kenya Technical Teachers College

The Kenya Technical Trainers College (KTTC) is a Government Institution under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology. KTTC was established with the primary objective of training technically skilled personnel, to not only teach in Technical Institutions, but, also for employment in all sectors of the economy.

With the mushrooming of Harambee Institutes (HITS); introduction of Technical Training Institutes, opening of private and other Government Training Institutes, the demand for technical teachers increased. As a result the Kenya Government held discussions with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) between 1973 and 1978.

The Kenya Technical Trainers College (KTTC) opened its doors to the first students in 1978. The then president, H.E. Daniel T. Arap Moi, EGH, MP officially opened the college on 16th March 1979. Since then, the college has continued to develop, in terms of courses and student enrollment. It is among the leading colleges of this kind in Eastern and Central Africa. KTTC derives its authority from the Education Act Cap 211 (revised in 1980) and Legal Notice N0 242 of 1978, which mandates it to train technical teachers for technical institutions in the country.

Initially, the bulk of teaching staffs were canadians. However, immediate steps were taken by CIDA to train Kenyans in Canadian Universities. Between 1978-1993 about 135 Kenyans effectively replaced Canadian teaching staff at the Kenya Technical Teachers College. This was one of the most succcessful CIDA projects in Kenya. The first graduation was held in 1979.
