Kenya hopes to achieve her dream of education by the year 2015, and be industrialized by the year 2020. The role of education in realizing these goals cannot be underscored. This is because they are responsible of ensuring there is effective and efficient implementation of education policies. The concern of this study was to ascertain whether there is any assessment conducted for training needs of education managers in Kenya. Often there have been reported cases of mismanagement of education institutions, acrimony between school heads and community just to cite a few problems faced by education managers. This study was confined to education managers in Thika District of Central Province. The first chapter was mainly on why this study was necessary. The study aimed at finding out whether there was assessment of training needs of the people managing education in the district. The study covered the senior officers working in the District Education Office, the field officers, principals of secondary schools and headteachers of primary schools. The second chapter examined literature from different sources on training. The third chapter dealt with methodology. Data was collected from various officers by use of questionnaire and interview. Since secondary schools and primary schools are quite many, 116 and 247 respectively, 50 principals and 100 primary school headteachers were covered in the study.
