Education and Training

Under education and training, Kenya will provide a globally competitive and quality education, training and research.. Kenya aims to be a regional centre of research and development in new technologies. This will be achieved through: (i) integrating early childhood education into primary education; (ii) reforming secondary school curricula: (iii) modernizing teacher training; (iv) strengthening partnerships with the private sector; (v) developing key programmes for learners with special needs, (vi) rejuvenating on-going adult training programmes; (vii) revising the curriculum for university and technical institutes to include more science and technology; and (viii) in partnership with the private sector, the Government will also increase funding to enable all these institutions to support activities envisaged under the economic pillar.

Programmes and Projects for 2008 - 2012
The government, in collaboration with development partners and other stakeholders has been implementing the Kenya Education Sector Support Programme (KESSP) with a view to addressing the main sector issues including the need to strengthen the management and delivery ofeducational services. In effect, this will improve the access, quality, equity and relevance of education and training. In order to stay on track towards meeting the objectives of the EFA, MDGs and Vision 2030, further investments in the short, medium and long term will be made necessary. The short- and medium-term investment programmes that will be implemented have been categorised into key areas including: One Year Recovery Strategy; Flagship projects which
