Teachers To Spend 5 Years in Universities in New DirectiveAccording to the new proposals in the competency-based curriculum, students who enroll in universities to pursue Bachelor of Education degrees will now spend more time in institutions of higher learning (CBC).According to the most recent proposal, trainees must spend at least five years in universities before graduating.Students pursuing Bachelor of Education degrees currently take four years, as do the majority of undergraduate courses in the country.This proposal follows a letter from Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) chief executive Agnes Wahome to vice-chancellors in both public and private universities, instructing them to adjust and review their programs to align with Teachers Service Commission proposals (TSC).“On February 24, the placement service received proposals on the reviewed placement criteria to degree programmes from the TSC,” Wahome stated.The new proposals take into account the introduction of some new courses in CBC as a result of the task force’s recommendations.“This will assist the commission to handle the new areas that have been introduced in the CBC for junior and senior secondary. the whole course will take five years and a half,” TSC CEO Nancy Macharia disclosed.According to the proposals, students will be expected to complete a six-month full-term teaching practice after completing the course.Students will be chosen based on a set of criteria that TSC will make public in order to keep everyone informed throughout the process.Following a directive from the Ministry of Education, KUCCPS has become a central body for student placement. Dr Julius Jwan, Principal Secretary for Early Learning and Basic Education, announced that all TTC applications will be handled by the Kenya KUCCPS.PS Jwan stated that the new KUCCPS recruitment formula will allow applicants to receive Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) assistance in the same way that students at other institutions do.The new directives, according to an education expert who spoke to Kenyans.co.ke, are intended to improve students’ understanding of CBC.ALSO READ:“With the introduction of new courses to teachers, the government is determined to ensure that the nation reaps from the proceeds of CBC. "At the moment it is still facing some opposition and even challenges in terms of implementation. But I’m sure with the latest measures, the government will get it right with CBC,” he insisted.Teachers To Spend 5 Years in Universities in New Directive
