The government says it has put in place elaborate mechanisms to ensure the quality of education offered in middle level Institutions is not compromised.
Thika Sub-County Director of Education Ronald Mbogo says standards for both private and public institutions are now standardized through common examination bodies that will be monitored by a multi agency team headed by the Ministry of Education.
The quality of education especially among private middle level colleges has come under focus with proprietors of the institutions accused of concentrating their energies on profit margins at the expense of quality.
Mbogo is seeking to dispel saying that the government has put in place stringent measures to ensure that examinations offered in all Educational facilities are devoid of cheating and other malpractices.
Speaking at Thika Institute of Business Studies College Mbogo said the Government has invested heavily in streamlining the quality of examinations offered in middle level learning institutions in a bid to ensure that candidates who graduate from the colleges answer to the demand and supply deficit currently being experienced in the labour markets.
Thika Institute of Business Studies Principal Charles Omollo said the institution has invested heavily in technology in line with the changing market demands.
