Yatani also stated that Sh1.2 billion will be allocated to teacher training on the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), with another Sh310 million going to the digital literacy program and ICT integration in secondary schools.
Four billion shillings will go toward the government’s plan to build more classrooms, while another Sh6.8 billion will go toward the Kenya Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project and Sh5.2 billion will go toward TVET students’ capitation.

“As a result, access to education at all levels has improved remarkably as evidenced by increased enrollment in the basic and tertiary institutions,” he added.
With an allocation of Sh1.2 billion, teacher training under the CBC has also received a significant boost. TSC announced this week in a circular that it will begin training junior secondary school teachers from April 25 to May 20, 2022.
Dr Macharia stated that the training will focus on CBC and Competency-Based Assessment and will use the cascade model of training, which requires Masters Trainers to train Trainers of Trainers (ToTs) and then provide professional support during face-to-face teacher training across the country and sub-counties.
Sh310 million was allocated to laptop projects as part of the Digital Literacy Programme and the integration of information and communication technology in secondary schools.
Yatani stated that the Sh64.4 billion for Free Day Secondary Education includes EduAfya insurance for high school students under the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF).
To cater to students in public secondary schools, the NHIF has implemented EduAfya, a comprehensive medical cover.
