Dr Jwan noted that the recruitment of applicants for pre-service teacher training through KUCCPS will allow them to receive Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) assistance in the same way that others who enrol in other courses through the institution will.




Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates can now choose to be selected for either the Diploma in Primary Teacher Education (DPTE) or the Diploma in Early Childhood Development Teacher Education (DECTE) when applying for post-secondary education training programs under the new policy.

The Ministry of Education is in charge of recruiting and placing prospective teachers in Teacher Training Colleges.

Teacher Training colleges will be part and parcel of the GPE programme

Dr Jwan declared that the Ministry will be part of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) grants to modernize Teacher Training Colleges.




The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) assists partner countries in strengthening and resiliency of education systems to ensure that children receive a quality education.

The Global Education Summit, held in London and co-hosted by UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, raised a record US$4 billion from donors for the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).

According to the PS, improved infrastructure in Teacher Training Colleges ensures quality teacher preparation, which leads to quality teaching and learning in schools.

“Teacher Training colleges will be part and parcel of the GPE programme,” Dr. Jwan said.

The Principal Secretary also stated that the Auditor General's Office will conduct an audit of public school finances.

According to Dr. Jwan, all funds received by schools as grants, student fees, and donations are public funds subject to public finance management laws.

He directed that the funds be spent prudently and in accordance with relevant financial, accounting, and procurement laws and regulations.

Ms Margaret Mwandale, Director for Teacher Education, and Mr. Saul Barasa, Chairperson of the Kenya Teachers' Colleges Principals Association, were among those present.
