History of Tom Mboya Labour College

Labour education and training in Kenya predates the establishment of the Tom Mboya Labour College (TMLC). The earliest efforts towards having a formal institution for training trade union leaders and workers on labour issues was the establishment of the Department of Workers’ Education at the Central Organization of Trade Unions-Kenya (COTU-K) in 1974. The Department became largely responsible for putting in place the structures for the commencement of the renowned COTU (K)’s Study Circle Programme in 1978. This saw the beginning of structured educational programmes which were offered on regular and frequent basis to trade union leaders and shopfloor workers.

The TMLC was formally opened in 1983 and was named in memory of the late veteran trade unionist Thomas Joseph Mboya. It was seen as a lasting testimony to the brilliant and high profile trade unionist.
