CICan announces Kenya Blue Economy Skills Training Program

Colleges and Institutes Canada has announced the launch of the Kenya Blue Economy Skills Training Program (KBEST), a seven-year program that will support economic diversification in Kenya. The program will be funded by a $25M investment from Global Affairs Canada and implemented by CICan in partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Education. KBEST will generate employment and economic growth with a focus on youth and women while prioritizing the blue economy. KBEST will use CICan’s Education for Employment partnership approach to connect technical and vocational training institutions in Kenya with Canadian colleges and institutes, which in turn will support Kenyan institutions in delivering skills training programs that meet international standards and address the needs of the blue economy.
