About Us

Shamberere Technical Training Institute is one of the greatest Institutions in tertiary training which offers creative and innovative courses. Shamberere Technical Training Institute (STTI), is located in Kakamega County and was established in 1982 as a Rural Education Center and later elevated to a Youth Polytechnic in 1985. It was subsequently awarded a Trade Test Center in 1996, catering for boarders and day scholars.

The Institute is now registered under the then Ministry of Education Science and Technology (MOEST) as one of the Technical Training Institutes in Kenya since 2009.
The Institute has continued to grow in terms of enrollment with approximately 2400 students and has one of the state of the art training infrastructure in Mechanical Engineering.

The Institute has very qualified and competent Trainers who impart skills, knowledge and positive attitudes to the trainees thereby ensuring all graduants are absorbed in the job market or they become successful entreprenuers.

In order to embrace inclusivity, we are among the few Institutes to admit trainees with special needs e.g. the trainees with physical challenges, trainees with hearing challenges among others.

The Institute is located next to West Kenya Sugar Company along Kakamega – Webuye road off Kambi ya Mwanza Market
