In Kenya, the demand for short courses has been steadily rising, as individuals seek to enhance their skills and employability in a competitive job market. Short courses provide a quick and efficient way to acquire specialized knowledge and skills without the time and financial commitment required for a full degree program.

With the current economy in Kenya, students who wish to further their studies in the country need appropriate advice before they stumble into courses that will make them jobless for years. After graduation, students’ top priority is finding work

While there are no certainties, putting the time and effort into a particular course can help you advance your career by equipping you with useful skills that will increase your competitiveness in the job market. There are minimal opportunities, and many graduates come to reality with the battle of seeking relevant opportunities. Typically, they take quite a significant time before they land jobs.

Whether you just completed your high school education or you have been in employment and looking for job promotions, picking the right course that will impact a highly valuable skill is paramount. The job market relies on the forces of demand and supply, skills and knowledge in high demand, and limited supply, attract high pay, while those that have become redundant receive poor pay or face layoffs.
