This paper points to the necessity to conduct research on the pedagogical readiness of instructors towards achieving integration of ICT's in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions in Kenya. Research on the integration of ICTs in teaching and learning in TVET institution in Kenya have been done to improve the learning process, though very little progress has been recognized toward its effective integration. TVET subsector have revealed that in spite of the many efforts that researchers and educators put over the years in preparing teachers in the educational uses of ICTs, teachers still lack the pedagogical skills and knowledge needed to be able to teach with ICT technology successfully. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of pedagogical readiness on effective integration of ICTs in TVET institution in Kenya with specific reference to Michuki and Thika Technical Training Institute in Murang'a and Kiambu County, respectively. The relationship between effective integration and pedagogical readiness is significant, the correlation coefficient, R, is 0.863. Therefore, effective integration is positively correlated with pedagogical readiness and the relationship is very strong. Teacher's technical education institutions need to develop strategies and plans to enhance the teaching learning process within teacher education programmes and to assure that all future teachers are well prepared to use the ICTs tools for learning.
