The Institute runs consultancy services in all its schools. There has been great expansion in primary and secondary education over the years without a corresponding increase in mid- level training colleges and universities. This has led to the inability of majority of KCSE school leavers to access training, leading to a huge training gap. Inadequate skills at the middle level are harmful to the industry and society since the technological gap prevents it from social-economic advancement. Machakos Institute of Technology comes in to specifically address these skill gaps in order to spur the country towards attaining its vision of industrialization by 2030.
