MOE, TSC Announces Fresh Secondary School Teachers Training To Enhance CBC Skills.
The Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), has announced new secondary school teacher training across the country.
TSC boss Nancy Macharia stated to education stakeholders on Tuesday, April 5, that the training was aimed at equipping teachers with skills in teaching the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) ahead of the transition of Grade Six students to Junior High School in 2023.
Macharia stated that the training will benefit 60,000 teachers and will be fully funded by the government for public school teachers.
“The commission has planned for 60,000 teachers in April to prepare them for Junior Secondary Schools in CBC with effect from April 25. This is immediately after the marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations,” she stated.
Furthermore, Macharia stated that the teachers will be trained in specific subjects as specified in the CBC.
Teachers will be trained in specific learning areas in languages, pure sciences, applied sciences, mathematics, humanities, and technical subjects,” the TSC boss divulged.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, for his part, assured stakeholders that the elections would not disrupt the training, adding that his Ministry was committed to ensuring a smooth transition of the pioneer CBC class to High School.
Following their national assessment in November 2022, the Grade Six class will transfer to selected Junior Secondary Schools in January 2023.

Instructors from the Ministry of Education and the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development will conduct the training (KICD).
However, according to Akelo Misori, Secretary-General of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), the training will only be effective if more resources are allocated to teacher recruitment.
“I wish the government can focus on the employment of teachers so that we can realise the effective implementation of the curriculum with the 100 per cent transition.
"When it comes to issues to do with facilities, I do not think that we are there yet. With CBC we expect improvement in science and technological equipment,” he stated.
