CBC Training At Glance As TSC Sets Standards For p1 Teachers To Teach In Junior Secondary Schools

CBC Training At Glance As TSC Sets Standards For p1 Teachers To Teach In Junior Secondary Schools.
According to the teachers’ employer, at least 60,000 high school teachers will be trained between March and April of next year in preparation for the rollout of junior secondary.
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) said, at least 228,000 primary school teachers have received training in the Competency-based Curriculum (CBC).
According to the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), syllabus designs for Grades One through Ten are complete.
George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has announced a new 10-month training program for teachers who will be in charge of the upcoming Grade 7.
This comes amid concerns about the introduction of junior high school education, which consists of Grades 7 and 8, and which forms the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
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.
After passing the Grade Six national examinations, pioneer students in the new 2-6-3-3-3 CBC system will move on to junior secondary school.

TSC Sets Standards For p1 Teachers To Teach In Junior Secondary Schools

TSC dashed the hopes of thousands of primary school teachers who graduated with a degree secondary option but a C (plain) in KCSE.
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 in Mombasa 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 master’s 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.
Teachers with TSC-approved qualifications, according to Lentoijoni, are the right kind of people to ensure quality education for children.
“These are the people with the ability to offer quality education for our children,” she said.
Knec recently imposed a condition that prevents parents from transferring students after they reach the sixth grade.
According to Knec, students enrolled in the Competency-Based Curriculum will not be permitted to transfer schools once they reach Grade 6.

According to a document issued by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec), under the CBC, school transfers are only permitted for students in Grades 1 through 5.
When students reach Grades 4 and 5, they must go to the sub-county director of education to request a transfer.
When students complete Grade 3, they will also need a special assessment number issued by KNEC.
This number will be used to aid in the assessment of students beginning in Grade 4.
The assessment number will be used by KNEC to track the learners’ assessment progress throughout their education.
This means that if a student decides to transfer from one school to another, they must keep their assessment number.

Those seeking transfers under CBC at that level—Grade 4 and 5—will have their assessment number used to expedite the transfer process.
The learner’s previous school will receive the transfer request online and click the Accept/Decline button.
When a learner is accepted by the headteacher, he or she will be transferred to the new school.
“Learners not in the KNEC system at Grade 4 and 5 can be registered by both the sub-county director of education and the headteacher,” the document reads.
