According to the new plan by the Ministry of Education, the government will settle a fraction of their fees and they will still be eligible for a governmental loan to settle the remainder.
A report revealed that the Ministry of Education estimated the entire college education cost for Technical and Vocational Educational education and Training (TVET) students cost Sh. 20 Billion.
The average fees at TVET institutions averages at Sh. 56,420.
In order to settle the fees for the students, the state will clear 30,000/- initial payment while the balance will easily be taken care of by a governmental loan of up to 40,000/- the students will be eligible for.
“The average fees at TVET institutions averages at Sh. 56,420.”
the loan will be available for TVET students just like their university counterparts an effort to bridge discrimination in transition to higher education.
