Admission to the Institute

 The Starehe Technical Training Institute is a part of  Starehe which deals with post Secondary education. The institute was established in 1991 with the view to offering education opportunities to those who could not join the Public universities with government sponsorship and could not afford fees to take themselves further educationally.The institute has two departments:

These include Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examinations Board (KASNEB), Kenya Institute of Management (KIM), Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) faculty of CEP.The institute currently offers a course in Certified Public Accountancy (CPA) from Section 1 to 4.

Currently, the Starehe Technical Training Institute admits Students from Starehe Boys' Centre. However, we may consider  admitting students from Outside Starehe with time.

Selection Procedure

The Selection of Students to the Starehe Technical Training Institute is based on past records of the Student, Discipline wise.

We do not major on the past academic records because we do not expect any of our students to fail.

Emphasis is put on the discipline record since the college students a.k.a. "Collegers" are expected to be role models to those in the high school division.

Form four students apply after completing their K.C.S.E. and should get their admission letters before leaving the school at the end of the year
