Details of Government of Kenya Presidential Digital Talent

DigiTalent is the brand name for the Presidential Digital Talent Programme (PDTP), an internship programme that develops the ICT talent pool in Kenya through a collaboration between the public and private sectors. It is a partnership between government, public and private sector stakeholders and is to be implemented by the Ministry of Information Communications and Technology (MoICT) through the ICT Authority (ICTA).

It is borne out of the need for government to enhance its capacity to use ICT in effective public service delivery. It also provides a training ground for potential employees and an affordable labour pool of freshly qualified individuals in government offices. Targeting recent graduates, PDTP offers participants an opportunity to understand government services, and provides them with a chance to contribute towards improving service delivery to Kenyan citizens.

Digitalent focuses on two key aspects:

  • Leadership development to develop ICT leaders in government management staff by entrenching them with ICT business principles to effectively run ICT structures.

  • Increased youth employability
  • Improved Public/Private sector collaboration
  • Accelerated economic impact through ICT effectiveness
