Eve Ann Muturi
Industrial Liaison Officer

The Department is headed by the Industrial Liaison Officer (ILO): Mr. Nicholas Macharia assisted by the Departmental Attachment Officers (DAOs) in each department.

Prior to the 8:4:4 system of education, industrial attachment was not a problem as all trainees entering the Technical Training system were required to have employer's sponsorship. The introduction of the 8:4:4 systems, however, opened up opportunities for non - sponsored trainees to enter technical training institutions

There was no guarantee for self-sponsored trainees to secure opportunities for industrial attachment. The main purpose of the attachment is to expose the trainees to the application of the skills they have learned in their trade in theory in real practice where others are earning their living from and also to the world of work and the ethics associated This makes it a vital component and a requirement of the course and so each trainee should get attached to a company or firm that utilizes the skills learned
