This links with Toyota Kenya Limited, through the introduction of Toyota Kenya Academy (TKA) which will address the critical needs for technical and entrepreneurship skilled manpower and also improve the quality and relevance to Kenya. We believe that entrepreneurship is a major source of employment, economic growth, innovation, promoting product and service quality, competition, and economic flexibility.
The training courses will be designed to create and enhance skills to ensure that those successfully qualifying will become professional practitioners in their areas of business. This will be geared towards achieving the key objective of addressing the challenges associated with limited capacity in various business sectors.

These courses will be taught by skilled business coaches from core business areas of automotive, entrepreneurship, agriprenuership, and business skills that include marketing, human resource, financial management, supply chain and basic law providing diversity to our package.
