Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1966 
13 p. 

The 1964 population of kenya was 9,376,000, most of which is dependent on agriculture. Land reform and formation of cooperatives have characterized recent economic developments. General education is provided by a 7-year integrated primary school course. Secondary education is provided in secondary schools, African trade schools, secondary technical schools, technical and trade schools, and teacher training institutions. Enrollments include about 60 percent of the primary age children, and only 12.5 percent of primary school leavers find a place in post-primary education. Institutional technical and vocational training is the responsibility of the ministry of education, while apprenticeship is administered by the minister of labor and social services under provisions of the industrial training act. Types of institutions providing technical training include (1) university college, nairobi, (2) kenya polytechnic, (3) four secondary technical schools, and (4) technical and trade schools. A manpower survey shows a shortage of technicians. Technical teacher education was first provided at kenya polytechnic in 1962 with help from Australia. Apprenticeship is of two types--apprenticeship of 4 or more years, and indentured learnership of less than 4 years. In 1964, 115 apprenticeships and 199 learnerships were registered. A graded trade testing system enables artisans who learned on the job to get recognition by being equated with levels of apprenticeship trained personnel. The united nations special fund has been asked for assistance in establishing an industrial training and productivity center. (jm)
