“As we launch the exercise today, we have already selected 24,795 successful 2015 KCPE candidates into our 103 national schools. The number that we have so far admitted to national schools is only a small fraction of the total of 942,021 candidates who successfully sat the KCPE this year,” he observed.

Dr Matiang’i said the selection exercise for County and Sub-county schools will take place on 15th and 19th December, 2016 respectively. The selection for Extra-county and county schools will be conducted at centres to be communicated to the county directors before the actual date. The Sub-county selection exercise will take place at all the sub-county levels.

Additionally, the top five candidates of either gender from every district have been placed in national schools on the basis of the choices they made during registration for KCPE where possible. “Overall, during this year’s selection, 790,680 candidates who sat KCPE in 2016 will be find places in Form One,” said the Cabinet Secretary.

He said the Government recognises the central place of national schools as centres of education excellence and national integration, adding that they intend to enhance the number of places further by upgrading two schools – Cheptiret Boys in Uasin Gishu and Osen Girls in Baringo – to the national category next year.

This, he said will ensure that the country has at least two national schools in every county.

The CS noted that funds have already been disbursed for upgrading and expanding infrastructure for the two schools in readiness for their first national class admission in 2018. “These schools will therefore be availed for choice as national schools to 2017 KCPE candidates,” he observed.

Dr Matiang’i said the Government has invested heavily in the expansion of training opportunities in polytechnics and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to provide an alternative route to higher education and training that can eventually provide a route to university degrees and even attainment of PhD level qualifications.

“Indeed the sky must be the only limit for all. It is important to note that demand for skilled technical labour is on the increase both in this country and in the entire region informed by the economic growth witnessed in this region,” he said.

“As our country gears towards becoming a middle-income economy as envisioned by Kenya’s Vision 2030, Kenyans with technical and vocational skills will be in great demand and will arguably be the most sought after.”
