Sagana technical institute is owned and managed by the consolata missionaries as part of their charisma of human promotion.
The institute is in Kirinyaga county, at the outskirts of Sagana town, along Sagana-Embu road next to Sagana police station. The Institute was started in 1970, initially as a vocational school, to equip young men with technical skills to be self-reliant and to uplift their living standards. It was later transformed into a technical secondary school. The institute is registered under the ministry of higher education, science and technology of Kenya under Technical and Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA) registration number 671 in the schedule of accredited institutions by TVETA.
With the change of education system in Kenya, the institute underwent a transition and became a technical training institute and admitted students for artisan courses such as masonry, carpentry and joinery, craft programs, such as, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, motor vehicle mechanics and printing technology which were introduced in 1990. The Institute introduced diploma courses in the year 2007 as as it diversified its training programs. It has continually registered good results in the Kenya national examinations.
