TSC To Train First Batch Of 60,000 Teachers Next Month

TSC To Train First Batch Of 60,000 Teachers Next Month.

When schools close next month, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) TSC intends to train the first batch of 60,000 teachers.

TSC chief executive officer Nancy Macharia stated that 229,292 primary school teachers from both public and private schools for Grades One to Five, as well as 1,166 tutors from various colleges, have already been trained.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has already trained 120,000 primary school teachers to handle grade six students next term.

The training, which was jointly organized by TSC and the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec), took place in December and lasted four days.

The Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) will be extended to junior secondary schools in 2023. Grades 7, 8, and 9 will make up the junior secondary school.

Pioneer students in the new 2-6-3-3-3 CBC system will graduate to junior secondary school in 2023 after passing the Grade Six national examinations.

According to the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), curriculum designs for Grades One through Ten are complete.

Thousands of primary school teachers who graduated with a degree secondary option but a C (plain) in KCSE had their hopes dashed by TSC.

Even if they had a degree, the Commission stated that only teachers with a mean grade of C+ in the Kenya Certificate for Secondary Examination (KCSE) would be promoted to teach in secondary schools.

This means that graduate P1 teachers with a C (plain) in KCSE will be unable to teach in junior secondary.

TSC Deputy Director of Staffing Antonia Lentoijoni told headteachers that, while the qualification requirements were unpopular with teachers, they would improve standards.

She stated that the Commission raised the bar to improve educational quality in response to new societal challenges.

“The Teachers Service Commission has raised the entry point of teaching in the country to have the right kind of people to offer quality education to our children,” said Lentoijoni.

Despite a suggestion by Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary-General Collins Oyuu that teachers in primary school be allowed to teach Grades 7 and 8 in junior secondary school because several of them have masters degrees, the decision now bars teachers who scored C- or C and have degrees from teaching in secondary school.

However, the TSC insisted that any teacher who wants to teach in secondary school must now have a C+ or higher, leaving those who obtained their degrees through diploma certificates in a bind.
