Kenya Technical Trainers College – KTTC

Kenya Technical Trainers College – KTTC Description

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.

The role of technology in the development of a country cannot the overemphasized. Kenya’s industrialization goal cannot be achievement unless technical training is given the emphasis it deserves. It is in recognition of this fact that Kenya Technical Trainers College – KTTC endevours to train highly qualified and competent technical teachers and technologists who can help to inculcate a technical culture amongst the youth in our country.

Over the years, Kenya Technical Trainers College – KTTC has continued to produce technical teachers for our secondary schools, youth polytechnics, technical institutes, institutes of technology and national polytechnics.

Students enrolling in the technical teacher education programs are offered different areas of specialization from the technical field. All trainees are also expected to study physical education and entrepreneurship education.

With the mushrooming of Harambee Institutes of Technology (HITs), introduction of Technical Training Institutes (TTIs), opening of private and other Government Training Institutions (Transport and Wter) and the expansion of the four national polytechnics (Kenya, Mombasa, Eldoret and Kisumu), the demand for technical teachers increased. As a result, the Kenya government, in Patnership with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) built KTTC between 1973 and 1978.

The college opened its doors to the first students in 1978. The College was officially opened by H.E. President Daniel T. Arap Moi, E.G.H. MP. on 16th March 1979. Since then the college has continued to develop both in terms of progammes courses and students enrolment.

Initially, the bulk of the teaching staff were Canadians. However, immediate steps were taken by CIDA to train Kenyans in Canadian Universities. Between 1978 and 1993 about 135 Kenyans effectively replaced all the Canadian teaching staff.

The College is also in the process of implementing its Strategic Plan (2008-2012). It is also gearing itself for ISO certification.

With the adoption of the above strategies, KTTC hopes that its management system will provide services and products that meet customer satisfaction.
