The Ministry of Education has unveiled its 4th National Education Sector Strategic Plan, which is set to cost Ksh5.2 trillion.

Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu announced that this five-year roadmap outlines the policy priorities, programs, and strategies for the education sector over the next five years.

Speaking at the launch event held at the Kenya School of Government (KSG) in Lower Kabete, Nairobi, Machogu stated that the government will contribute Ksh3.47 trillion, while an additional Ksh1.55 trillion will be sourced from development partners.

Machogu called on stakeholders to collaborate in implementing the plans detailed in the roadmap, which aims to provide quality education and produce globally competitive and industrious learners.

The document provides a framework for the Ministry to ensure access, equity, and quality education and training for all citizens during this period.

The plan encompasses all three state departments, covering programs from pre-primary to university education.

In February, during the presentation of the Draft National Education Sector Strategic Plan (NESSP) 2023-2027, the CS informed stakeholders that the ministry had aligned its strategies, activities, and budget with the national government to enhance efficiency.
