The department of education has completed the disbursement of Ksh 60 million in form of bursaries to over 6000 needy students. The beneficiaries include: students in universities, vocational training centres (VTC’S,) high schools and special needs students. The process of disbursement was arrived at through public participation with Consultations from administrative officers at grassroots level so as to identify the needy students who really deserved these bursaries


The department initiated an ECDE project that will see 60 centres constructed across the county each ward being allocated 2 centres. The placement of these ECDE centres was again achieved through public participation where there was need to identify areas that lack ECDE facilities yet they have a considerable population of children and also reduce the amount of distance walked by these children to access the existing ECDE centres


The department of Education and Vocational Training has 13 VTCs across the county with a total of 117 instructors. The county government is planning to hire more instructors so as to reduce instructor trainee ratio significantly. The county government in partnership with Computer for Schools Kenya (CFSK) has acquired over 300 computers with servers. This partnership will see the CfSK install these computers in all the computer labs in the Vocational Training Centres (VTCs).

The county government also supports the VTCs by providing subsidized youth polytechnic tuition fee (SYPT) of Ksh15, 000 per trainee per year.


Other Key Milestones

The establishment of the Proposed Koitalel University which is a Constituent College of Nairobi University. The County has obtained two parcels of land within Nandi-hills and Chesumei Sub-counties where the main campus and one of the campuses for the proposed University will sit respectively.

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.

GRACE SUGUT is pursuing a Master of Philosophy in Educational Communication and Technology at Moi University.

Sugut holds Post Graduate Diploma in Education from Egerton University and a Bachelor of Arts in Government & Linguistics from the University of Nairobi.

She went Moi Girls High School, Eldoret, Loreto High school, Matunda and Hill School, Eldoret.

An enthusiastic and dedicated professional with extensive experience in training and administration, Sugut earned a Vice Chair position for the Nandi County Public Service Board, where she served wholeheartedly before her new appointment.

Prior to joining the county government, Sugut was a Senior Lecturer at Ol’lessos Technical Institute and HOD at the Guidance & Counselling Department where she coordinated prevention of Alcohol & Drug Abuse and HIV/ AIDS.

At Mosoriot Teachers College, Sugut lectured English and Communication Skills, coordinated arts and drama activities, did student evaluation, their assessments and was the debate club patron.

She also taught English and Literature at Kilibwoni Boys High School.

The Department of Education and Vocational Training has the overall responsibility of overseeing pre-primary, home craft centres, child care facilities and Vocational Training. Its mandate is basically to execute the devolved function of education as captured in the Constitution of 2010.

In its endeavor to actualize this mandate, the department is currently undertaking a massive project of constructing 60 ECDE Centres across the county (2 per ward). The construction is done by VTCs under the supervision of public works. The completion of this project and other subsequent projects will herald in Nandi County a consistent development of quality infrastructure for our institutions. It is also expected to improve on the learning environment and eventually the quality of education given to our children. After this, the department intends to provide teaching and learning materials to these centres to make teaching and learning easy and enjoyable.

For teaching to be effective, adequate qualified teachers must be available in our institutions. The department will make all possible efforts to address this issue and with the available resources we will endeavor to have the minimum required number of teachers for each centre.


On the side of Vocational Training, the department has plans and arrangements in the next financial year that will drastically change the concept of vocational training. Apart from facilitating the institutions in terms of purchase of tools and critical equipment for training, we want to focus on linking up these centres with other stakeholders in this sector to provide internship for trainees. This will provide the requisite impetus and motivation to our trainees that there is hope after their training. We expect to have further consultative discussions with more of these stakeholders.

The department also expects to look into the possibility of creating centres of specialization by allowing the centres to identify courses for specialization (the legal implication not withstanding). This arrangement will make it easy and cheap for the department to provide facilities and instructors to these institutions.

Through the Nandi County Education Fund Act, 2016, the department is mandated to give bursaries to needy students. In the financial year 2017/2018, the department disbursed bursaries amounting to Ksh. 60,000,000 to 6434 beneficiaries. We realize that these amounts are not adequate compared to the number of applicants (12410). The department hopes that in future it can get more money for this purpose.

Finally, education is critical in the county’s economic development, therefore, there is need for maximum cooperation from the Nandi County citizens. The residents of this county should trust and support the county government of Nandi in its efforts to transform education in tandem with the transformative agenda of the*Tuga Tai* Manifesto.



The mandate of Education, Research and Vocational Training Department is to execute the devolved functions related to county pre-primary education, village polytechnics, home craft centres and child care facilities as per requirements of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.


To create a conducive learning environment that will equip .learners with desired values, attitudes, knowledge, skills and competencies in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship and embrace research.


To provide quality education and training to the people of Nandi that makes learners creative and innovative.


The department proposes three major strategic thrusts:-

  • To expand access to educational .opportunities particularly in basic education (ECDE) and Vocational Training.
  • To improve the quality of education at all levels.
  • To improve educational framework and expand capacities for effective delivery and management of educational services.


  • Transparency and accountability
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Teamwork
  • Professionalism
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Quality service delivery

    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.
