The paper presents an overview of technical education in Kenya as well as of the wide variety of industrial training domains, and the important parts they each play in the total structure of industrial training. A comprehensive discussion, and a good deal of data concerning training schemes of the Directorate of Industrial Training are presented. An effort is made to highlight the variety of issues and problems involved in the industrial training levy and rebate system, particularly with regard to the effect of formal training under the system upon other types of training. Special attention is drawn to the nature of overall training needs in the economy and the appropriateness of the response by existing institutions. The paper presents a cohesive view of the scope and interrelationships of industrial training activity in Kenya.
