TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) institutions are pivotal in equipping young Kenyans with skills to improve their employability or pursue solo careers. In essence, these learning centres were created to improve education standards in Kenya.

TVETA (Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority) oversees all TVET centres. The parastatal has published an approved list of TVET institutions in Kenya.
