Education is judged on how well the trainees secure formal and informal employment. The paper employed ethical theories such as Virtue ethics, Deontological ethics,Ethical learning and growth Teleological ethics to build its content. The research involved survey approach to get responses from 20 education and training institutions 50 lecturers and 200 students, 10 leading managers and 30 government officers working in different ministries and government agencies in Mt Kenya region. An analysis of the data was carried out using principle component analysis. From the diagnosis of the study, it was found that ethics as a discipline of critical thinking and learning has not been widely integrated in the current training and education system. It was found that students who undertake ethical and critical thinking are more productive because of the high memory comprehension, retention and awareness of reality. From our recommendation, in order to spur innovation and invention among trainees in Kenya,so as to develop the spirit of entrepreneurship, then ethical thinking and learning should be integrated in all the training and educational programmes. The findings and recommendations indicated that the research objectives had been achieved. en_US
