National Industry Traineeship Programme
The State Department for Post Training and Skills Development maps industries that are ready to train the youth. Currently, the Department has mapped over 400 industries spread out in 36 Counties. The Department then sources and places the youth in these industries for training. The goal of this programme is to improve the employability and earning opportunities of out-of-school youth, through access to on-the-job training. In FY2020/21, the Department, in collaboration with Generation Kenya, has conducted the Pilot for this programme at Mega Couture EPZ industry, at Kilifi County. Under this Pilot, 300 youth were trained by Mega Couture EPZ industry as Sewing Machine Operators and thereafter employed by the industry.
