Government to streamline quality of education in all middle-level colleges.

Thika West Director of Education Ronald Mbogo

The Ministry of education has embarked on a comprehensive programme aimed at streamlining middle-level education and to standardise what is offered and examined in these institutions across the country.

This was revealed by the Thika West Director of Education Ronald Mbogo at Thika Institute of Business Studies (TIBS) when he led a multi-agency team that was monitoring the progress of Kenya National Examinations Council examinations.

Mbogo said that stringent measures have been put in place to ensure that examinations offered in all institutions were above board and students who graduated from these colleges met the requisite standards required in the job market.

He noted that there existed a huge deficit in qualified human resource in the labour market that could only be solved by diversifying the faculties taught in learning institutions with great emphasis on technical education.

“A quality technical school curriculum will bridge the gap between the formal and non-formal courses and provide life skills currently missing in the job market. The government is re-organising Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) curriculum into a coherent and transparent framework that will provide for entry and passage from one stage of life to another without necessarily looking for the elusive white collar jobs,” he said.
