The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has issued clarification regarding payments for applications for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) courses.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the agency emphasized the importance of using only the official KUCCPS account number for submitting applications, cautioning against the use of mobile money codes for payment.
Although the reason for this directive was not disclosed, the organization emphasized the necessity of using the provided account number for TVET application payments.
“For TVET application payment, please use the account number provided for payment to submit your application,” KUCCPS stated
KUCCPS recently opened applications for TVET courses, targeting students who completed their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams between 2000 and 2022.
The deadline for submission is set for January 2024 to facilitate the placement process into various schools.
A total of 494,317 students who scored a D+ and below in the 2023 KCSE exams are eligible to join Technical and Vocational Education and Training institutions and artisanal schools for pursuing a certificate or diploma of their choice.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has consistently advocated for students to acquire practical skills through short courses offered by TVETs, emphasizing that such skills empower students for self-employment.
