“We want to ensure fisheries training and development is done in a conducive environment for teachers and students. We want high quality technical vocational education training (Tvet) fishery training,” he said.
“Fisheries training started in 2014 and 10 institutions in the country have taken up the courses already. Each Tvet institution got K60,000 to run these programmes.”
A memorandum of understanding on quality fishery training was signed in 2015 between the NFA and Tvet institutions.
Badili is the first to get a new training building under the agreement.
