Female Learners' Access to Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) Courses: Case of Marine Engineering in Mombasa Technical Training Institute, Kenya
Female learners are categorized as under-represented in SET-courses and careers. Previous studies have discussed factors influencing female participation SET-courses/careers. However little has been done to investigate retention and completion rate; explore strategies for enhancing female participation as well as relevance of SET courses for sustainable development. Sometimes institutions over focus on enrollment but fail in ensuring effective course delivery, learner support systems and that learner’s benefit from skills acquired. Therefore factors affecting retention and completion rate are worthy investigation before establishing strategies for enhancing female participation in SET-courses. // Paper ID 371
