The Nyeri National Polytechnic is one of the TVET institutions charged with the mandate of training middle level technical and vocational labor force. In the global arena, Science, Technology and Innovation (ST & I) are the drivers for rapid world’s economic prosperity, social development and provide tools and solutions to address global challenges. For this reason, the government through the Ministry of Education, has strengthened the focus of ST& I and Technical Education (TE) policies as underlying the country’s national development efforts.
The Government National Development agenda is clearly outlined in various key policy documents including the Economic Recovery Strategy for Wealth and Employment Creation (ERSWEC) 2003-2007 and the National Development Plan 2002-2008. The government also recognizes that its development agenda can be accelerated if there is renewed focus on the integration of ST&I in all the social-economic sectors as outlined in the Kenya Vision 2030. The government has therefore embraced ST&I and TE as one of its top priorities.
