Résumé
The main aim of this study was to understand the role of the Community vocational training centers in the wider socio-economic empowerment of women. The process depended on finding out the effects of skills training on social economic empowerment of women, examination of the impact of TVET on social economic empowerment of women and how these institutions contribute to the improvement of the performance of TVET on social economic empowerment of women. The study was carried out in Nakuru Town East Sub-County. This area was selected because there are three polytechnics which source students from the larger Nakuru County and its environs. This study presented a unique look at the significance or failure of TVET in the empowerment of women. It also presented a new line of inquiry in the entire spectrum of women empowerment, especially when it comes to female participation in male dominated sectors like construction and electrical engineering. The study adopted an explanatory design. This way the detailed description comes before the final explanation. For this study, the target population was women who have received training at TVET institutions within Nakuru East town Sub-County over the past five years. The sample of this study comprised of 114 women selected from each of the TVET institutions located in Nakuru East Town Sub-County. The study primarily depended on questionnaires to get study data. The study found that when women attend vocational training, and they gain skills which provide them with access to employment opportunities. These employment opportunities give them access to their own funds. With that access to finance, coupled with agency and decision making they are able to improve their lives in the long term. The study will be used by counties and the national government in their initiatives aimed at empowering women. The authorities will be able to use the existing community vocational centers better and also find ways to establish new ones in a manner that will serve young women better.
