The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) is offering a second chance to students who sat for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination between 2000 and 2021.
In a statement on Thursday, February 10, KUCCPS offered an opportunity to candidates who sat for their KCSE between 2000- 2020 to horn their skills through their government-sponsored programs.
KUCCPS stated that former KCSE candidates who sat for their exams between 2000 and 2021 and were not placed by the placement service now stand a chance to undertake a TVET course.
The placement service further asked interested candidates to apply for new opportunities if they were never selected for any college opportunities.
KUCCPS also asked candidates to apply via their portal for a chance to pursue their career of choice under government sponsorship.
Did you sit the KCSE exam between 2000 and 2021 and haven’t been placed by KUCCPS to undertake a TVET course.
Our portal is now open for applications. Apply for a chance to pursue your career of choice under government sponsorship,” the placement service stated.
“The ongoing TVET course application is open to anyone who sat KCSE last year (2021) up to 2000, provided one has never been selected to join a college by KUCCPS.”
KCSE candidates can now apply for diplomas, certificates and artisan courses through the KUCCPS portal.
Those seeking to apply for artisan certificate courses should possess a minimum KCSE Grade of E, craft certificate courses should have a mean grade of D (plain) and above. On the other hand, those seeking to apply for diploma courses should have a mean grade of C- (minus) and above.
All applications can be done online through the student’s portal accessible through the KUCCPS website www.kuccps.ac.ke
