The Department of Education and Vocational Training is aspiring to take the County Government of Nandi to greater heights in service delivery as far as matters education are concerned. As a department we have laid out plans that will see all our aspirations attained within a stipulated time. Education being a crucial component in our society, I am passionate about ensuring that we really improve it in our county. The department is focusing on improving the standard of early childhood education, vocational training centres and assisting the needy students through bursaries and scholarships.
To education in ECDE,the department is going to ensure that pupils in our centres get access to modern learning classrooms across the county. We have also entered into an agreement with the Kenya Literature Bureau [KLB] to supply our pupils with books so that the foundation of a reading culture is established at initial stages of education. In fact we have started construction of the first 60 centres in this financial year 2017/2018.In the next financial year, my ministry targets to employ some more ECDE teachers and in future improve their terms of service.
When it comes to Vocational Training, the department intends to equip our vocational training centres so that such centres can be fully operational. We recently launched a program that aims at equipping all fourteen centres with computers, courtesy of Computer for Schools Kenya (CFSK). We therefore encourage our youths to enroll for courses in these training centres so as to attain relevant skills.
We have also realized that, in our county we have a number of needy students who require support for them to continue with education. For that reason the department is going an extra mile into looking for alternative ways of sourcing for more funds for the same, as we noted that the bursary allocation is not enough.
Finally, I ask for all the stakeholders of education to work harmoniously with us so that as a county, we shine in education.
We need the department to engage the structure accordingly not having Job creation in the department so as to please friends and relatives or the highest feeder. We need a staffing officer Across the sub counties to deal with transfers of ECDE teachers like Tsc.

wish to thank the county government for all the developmental efforts they are doing in uplifting our county on the national map. concerning matters of education wish the county government can do better in fair recruitment of teachers especially primary teachers. It is a point of concern when p1 teachers have to wait for 10 years before being employed.
