Addressing the press at the institution, Dr. Jwan said the institution was ready to receive the students after about 7 months since the Coronavirus outbreak brought learning to a halt.
“I am here in Eldoret Polytechnic to inspect the phased reopening of the schools and I must admit that the institution is ready for the resumption of learning activities,” said Dr. Jwan.
Dr. Jwan further said that those who were proceeding with their examinations will be given priorities and are set to continue with exams on the 12th this month.
He asked the managers of the institutions all over the country to ensure all the protocols are adhered to during learning sessions.
On TVET, he said, “the future of this country depends on vibrant TVET sector and ought to be embraced in all facets”.
According to Dr.Jwan, there are over 540,000 graduates who are eligible for joining the TVET institutions from the 660,000 candidates who did their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) last year.
Students will now have to prepare for Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) exams slated for Monday next week.
