Matili TTI was started in 1959 as a youth centre.  It was upgraded to a Village Polytechnic in 1971 and a Youth Polytechnic in 1984 offering Vocational Training in various trades.  It was upgraded to a Technical Training Institute in 2009, in conformity with the Governments’ commitment in harnessing the contributions of Science, Technology and Innovation as a tool in achieving the goals set out in the vision 2030.

The vision recognizes the role of Science, Technology and Innovation in the modern economy in which new knowledge plays a central role in wealth creation, social welfare and international competitiveness.

The Strategic Plan, a revision of the old one has been restructured and aligned to the Institute’s vision, mission, the Kenya vision 2030, the medium term plans and the TVET Act, 2013.

The development of the strategic plan has been an all inclusive one.  It involved a series of consultative meetings and workshops with key stakeholders who included the Board of Governors, staff, students, suppliers, contractors, the industry and technical experts at different levels. It is expected that the implementation of the plan will help the institute to deliver its mission.
