Technical Training Institutions (TTIS) in Kenya play a significant role in providing skills that are required in the various sectors of the Kenyan economy. A concern of a mismatch of skills produced by Technical Training Institutions and the skills required by the industry has been raised. This study thus sought to fill the gap. The study focused on diploma students for clothing and Building and Construction Technology. Findings revealed that (HO) there is a significant statistical relationship between instructional equipment and skill development. Qualitative results supported these findings as TTIs were found highly theoretical. The study concluded that TTIs cannot be relied on in producing adequate skills and neither are the industries in training students. The researcher proposed a perceptual a curriculum implementation model aimed at tackling the issue of skills gap.
