Kenya Coast National Polytechnic

Kenya Coast National Polytechnic formally Mombasa Technical Training Institute (Mombasa TTI) is located in the coast Mombasa Town. It was established in 1950 as a Technical High School. Upon the introduction of the 8-4-4 system of education, it was elevated to a middle level technical college in 1984 to provide technical training for the middle level man power for both the private and public sectors of the economy. The trainees in the institute are drawn from fresh secondary school leavers, graduates from other tertiary institutions, employees on part-time release basis and the informal (Jua Kali) sector.
Kenya Coast National Polytechnic is managed by a Council, which consists of 13 members appointed by the Government to represent the community, industrialists, professionals and various governmental departments. The Principal serves as the Secretary to the Council. The Institution operates under the Education Act and offers curriculum developed by the Kenya Institute of curriculum development (KICD) and the Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT). Kenya Coast National Polytechnic offers courses at Artisan, Craft and Diploma levels, plus a plethora of short-term certificate courses in the part-time programme. All the courses offered at Craft and Diploma levels incorporate Entrepreneurship Training and Industrial Attachment to prepare the trainees for formal and self-employment.

The examining bodies are:-

-The Kenya National Examinations council (KNEC),
-Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examination Board (KASNEB).

Kenya Coast National Polytechnic is a member of the Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions (KATTI). Kenya Coast National Polytechnic has seen tremendous growth in terms of courses offered and the student enrollment from an initial population of 23 students and 24 teaching staff in 1990 to the current 3000 students and 94 teaching staff respectively. This has resulted in a strain on the training facilities whose expansion has unfortunately not matched this student growth. The demands from the market and the changes in curriculum and technology have not been matched by additional training facilities in terms of space, equipment and staff.Kenya Coast National Polytechnic has been identified by the Government of Kenya (GoK) for up-grading to a national polytechnic. The Institution is bracing itself for such an up-grade to take full advantage of its enhanced capacity in terms of staff numbers and calibre, physical facilities, wide spectrum of courses, unique location close to Central Business District (CBD) of Mombasa and major industries and commercial organizations, existing transportation infrastructure and housing.
