KUCCPS TVET Application Now Open for Form Four Graduates

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) plays a crucial role in guiding the trajectory of students’ academic journeys. As of January 19, 2024, the eagerly awaited portal for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) applications has swung open, unlocking a myriad of possibilities for form four graduates.

KUCCPS extends an inviting hand to students who, for various reasons, may not have secured placement during initial school applications or subsequent revisions. The process is conveniently online, easing the burden for prospective candidates. To explore options in National Polytechnics, Technical Training Institutes, or Technical Vocational Colleges, applicants can submit their preferences for a Diploma, Craft Certificate, or Artisan Certificate.

Requirements for TVET Programs:

Understanding the requirements is fundamental to embarking on a successful TVET journey. Aspiring candidates must align with the following criteria:

  • Diploma: KCSE Mean Grade of C- (minus) and above.
  • Craft Certificate: KCSE Mean Grade of D (plain) and above.
  • Artisan Certificate: KCSE Mean Grade of D-(minus) and below.

Prospective applicants can find detailed information on available programs, institutions, minimum entry requirements, and the application procedure on the KUCCPS Student’s Portal, accessible through the Placement Service website www.kuccps.ac.ke.

Eligibility and Assistance:

A noteworthy aspect of this opportunity is its inclusivity. All KCSE certificate holders who have not previously benefited from government sponsorship are eligible to apply, provided they meet the stipulated minimum requirements. For those seeking guidance or facing challenges during the application process, assistance is available at various Huduma Centres, including Nairobi (GPO and Makadara), Eldoret, Meru, Nyeri, Kisumu, Kakamega, Nakuru, Kitui, Garissa, and Mombasa. Additionally, the KUCCPS offices at ACK Garden House (Ground Floor) on 1st Ngong Avenue in the Community Area, Nairobi, stand ready to provide support.

Looking Ahead:

Successful applicants are poised to embark on their academic journey in September 2024, marking a significant step towards personal and professional growth. This initiative aligns with KUCCPS’s commitment to creating accessible avenues for education, ensuring that every eligible student has the opportunity to pursue higher learning.
