Abstract:This article identifies some of the problems in technical education during the first decade of independence and assesses critically official attempts to solve these. Suggestions are also made to indicate what future trends ought to be in national interests. It was vaguely felt that all levels of technicians were needed especially since Kenya relied heavily on expatriate staff; yet a survey in 1975 revealed that there was a high unemployment rate among Technical High School graduates and among Technical Secondary School graduates. The major problem was the need for efficient coordination of technical training provided by all agencies. Ref.; tables.
