Standards Assessment and Quality Assurance

Speaking during the Madaraka Day celebrations in Kisumu County, President Uhuru Kenyatta directed the Kenya National Qualifications Authority(KNQA) through the Ministry of Education to fast track the operationalization of the policy framework in one month’s time for comprehensive recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Years since the idea was first mooted, Kenyans who had acquired hands-on skills without formal training such as masons, plumbers, electricians, mechanics among many others will now be able to acquire higher academic levels as part of the perks.

“This policy intervention will expand the opportunities for artisans and craftsmen in our jua kali sector to participate meaningfully in our economy,” President Kenyatta said.
