    • Findings on addressing youth unemployment through higher education curricula

      A completed 2021 nationwide youth survey in Kenya (aged 18-35) that was supported under the 2020 ACCESS Idea Competition found a general disagreement to the thesis that higher education would guarantee a good job in Kenya, with an average score of 2.5 on a scale of 1 (strong disagreement) to 5 (strong agreement). The study confirmed that attitudes towards TVET have been changing positively given the promise for skills and jobs.

    • Musings on my visit to Flensburg University of Applied Sciences
