CIC RFQ-Live Event and Streamed on Location Jobs in Kenya

Background on CICan Kenya – SITVES and KEFEP Projects

Supporting Innovation in the Technical and Vocational Education Sector (SITVES)

  • There is a tremendous need in Kenya to prepare young women and young men for new economic opportunities by improving their skills, employability, industry competitiveness, efficiency, and capacity for innovation. Fostering innovation, promoting gender equality, and supporting applied research through evidence-based interventions are key to enabling Kenyan TVET institutions better prepare youth with relevant industry responsive competencies and skills for employment and self-employment.

  • They can also enhance partnerships with the private sector and communities leading to a more dynamic, innovation orientated TVET ecosystem will help female and male students access or create decent job opportunities.

  • SITVES is a 3-year project (2019-2022) implemented by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in partnership with Linking Industry with Academia (LIWA) and the Rift Valley Technical Training Institute (RVTTI). SITVES is a competitive innovation fund supported by Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

  • It will foster innovation in Kenya’s TVET ecosystem by positioning TVET to contribute equitably to the socio-economic transformation of counties and Kenya’s development agenda through innovation and research with a focus on women and girls. The project has 3 pillars: Innovation and Applied Research Hubs; Gender Equality in TVET; and Action Research.

    Kenya Education for Employment Program (KEFEP)

  • The program is designed to strengthen the quality of industry-responsive and gender-sensitive skills training programs; to increase effectiveness of institutions to deliver skills training programs that meet industry needs; and to increase effectiveness of national Kenyan agencies to implement TVET reform initiatives.

  • The project builds the capacity of institutions and agencies responsible for TVET in Kenya and will result in male and female graduates with the right skills to pursue formal employment or self-employment. Capacity building is delivered through five institutional and three thematic partnerships between CICan member colleges and Kenyan partner institutions and agencies, as well as through procurement of relevant tools and equipment required to maximize planned
    results of KEFEP institutional partnerships.
