One way of training for your future occupation in Kenya is by pursuing a vocational course. Faraja Foundation supports students willing to shape their careers through provision of school fees to join vocational training institutions. Such programmes offer plenty of opportunity for on-the-job training and work experience. These programmes take a duration of up to two and a half years and comprise theoretical as well as practical elements. This combination of theory and practice gives a student a real head start into the job: by the time you have completed your training, you will not only have the required technical knowledge, but you will also have hands-on experience in your job. Employment prospects for students who have completed vocational training programme are competent. This is one of the reasons why this training is very popular with young Kenyans. Around two-thirds of all students who leave school enroll in vocational training programmes.
