dc.description.abstract PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // Learning in TVET institutions in Kenya has traditionally been done face-to-face. However, the Covid-19 pandemic paralyzed learning countrywide and the learners’ experienced physical separation from their peers and trainers. In order to build resilience in learning in TVET institutions, learning was done on-line. The study sought to establish the opportunities and challenges of on-line learning to learners in TVET institutions in Kenya during the Covid-19 pandemic. The study adopted a descriptive research design. The target population was learners at Kabete National Polytechnic, in Kenya. Stratified, random and purposive sampling methods were used to obtain the sample. Data was collected using a questionnaire and interviews. The findings of the study identified the challenges of on-line learning as lack of internet connectivity and technological skills, poor delivery of practical skills among others. The opportunities included; learners became responsible for their learning process, innovative, acquired technological skills among others. The study recommended collaboration among TVET institutions around the world in order to build resilience in education and ensure access of education and training to all. It also recommended sponsorship of female student in STEM courses to enhance equity and gender equality. // Paper ID 3287
