Government Training Institute–Baringo was established in 1968 by Friedrick Ebert Foundation of Germany in partnership with the defunct County Council of Central Rift (CCCR) as a Citizenship College to train the community in a variety of fields.
In 1975, the Government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Culture and Social Services assumed financial obligation of the then college that had since been renamed to Baringo District Training Centre (BDTC). With the onset of Government Strategy for District Focus for Rural Development in 1983, the Centre was re-designated to Baringo District Development Institute (BDDI) with expanded mandate to train for the strategy in North Rift and Western Kenya.
In July 2003, the Institute was transferred to Directorate of Personnel Management (DPM) to become a Government Training Institute (GTI) whose core function is Training and Capacity Building.
Training and Capacity Building primarily in the public service.
Our Vision is "To be the leading Government Training Institute in Kenya"
To provide effective and efficient training in management and other related disciplines, research and consultancy services in the public and private sectors for sustainable socio-economic development.
