Abstract This research study aimed at investigating the correlation of education and employment

of physically challenged persons in Mbogoini Division, Nakuru-North District.

The research is divided into 5 chapters which attempt to navigate from the background to

the problem, objectives and research questions of the study (as will be seen in chapter

one). Chapter two focuses on the reviewed literature which was very vital in the study

and formed a basis for the research investigation. Chapter three concentrated on the

methodology which comprised of the research design, study population (size and area) as

well as data collection instruments. Chapter Four was devoted to the presentation of data

and analysis. Finally, Chapter Five gave a summary of the findings, conclusions and

recommendations. It also gave areas for further research.

The research was guided by the objective and the research questions. The research

revealed that instructors in the polytechniques the physically challenged attend are not

trained in special needs education and they have not been exposed to workshops and

seminars on special needs education. The study further revealed that there were no

instructors within these institutions who had specialized knowledge geared towards the

specific training needs of the physically challenged persons.

A further research revelation was the fact that the curriculum used to train in the

vocational institutions for the physically challenged adequately prepared the physically

challenged for gainful employment. On education of the physically challenged, the

research learned that a bigger percentage of the physically challenged ready for gainful

employment at least attended and completed primary school education they further

engage in income generating activities of their choice.

The study findings indicated that the major problems faced by the physically challenged

when finding jobs is lack of adequate finances. Other factors included lack of transport as

well as discrimination from the employers.

Finally, the research discovered that many employers in the private sector rarely consider

the physically challenged people in their job domains although the government

institutions and parastatals have provisions for the same.
