Technical education skills development is one among other strategies thought to be what Kenya needs for the achievement of vision 2030 (Ministry of Education [MoE], 2019). To realize this vision, Kenya needs a critical mass of well-trained graduates. In regard to this, a serious discrepancy between skills produce by training institutions and skills required by industries has been raised. Luas, et al (2012) asserts that when such a phenomenon is raised the problem in mainly in pedagogy. The study thus sought to address this by establishing the relationship between instructional methods and skills development. Results indicated that; (HO) there is a statistically significant relationship between instructional methods and skills development. Qualitative results supported these findings as data revealed that TTI pedagogy was highly theoretical. The study proposed a perceptual curriculum implementation model suitable for tackling instructional issues facing TTIs.
