The Kenya School of Government is the premier capacity development institution for the Public Service in the country and the region. The mandate of the School is to enhance knowledge, skills, and competencies of public officials and thereby transform the Public Service into an efficient, innovative, and expert agency in national leadership and management, policy making and implementation, service delivery, and public engagement. Furthermore, the School is required to deliver programs aimed at inculcating public service ethics, doctrines and values for greater accountability and responsiveness to the needs and expectations of citizens.
