TSC to Fete Examiners With 30 Years Experience

During the country’s transition to a new educational system, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will honor the longest-serving examiners for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).

On Thursday, November 23, at the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) headquarters in South B, Nairobi, Nancy Macharia, the Chief Executive Officer of the TSC, announced that the TSC will honor teachers who have marked examinations for over three decades.

This declaration coincided with the release of the 2023 KCPE results. Macharia emphasized the TSC’s commitment to providing performance-based rewards to educators and retraining them to effectively implement the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

She stated, “I intend to welcome all of our instructors to our new curriculum-based assessment and encourage them to familiarize themselves with the novel approaches that accompany CBC.”

Examiners comprised 7,250 educators, while invigilators, supervisors, and center administrators comprised the remaining 234,473.

Additionally, the CEO of the Commission expressed condolences to the families of Ahmed Nur Ismail of Garissa and Dr. Sally Mutinda, who passed away at Nairobi Women’s Hospital on Sunday, November 19, and who suffered injuries from a helicopter blade on Tuesday, respectively.

Mutinda had more than two decades of experience as an English composition examiner and was a deputy chief examiner, whereas Ismail was an exceptional ICT champion in Garissa County.

Administering KPSEA and KCPE concurrently marked the second consecutive year.

David Njeng’ere, the CEO of KNEC, highlighted that the KCPE examination has served over 26,316,037 candidates in the 39 years since its inception. Additionally, he noted that from 2005 to 2008, citizens of South Sudan in the Kauda Mountains area also had access to KCPE during that period.

In a similar fashion, approximately 25,000 candidates with disabilities have taken KCPE exams in the past 39 years.

Additionally, he mentioned that in 1985, the gender distribution of KCPE candidates was as follows: 40.8% for female candidates and 59.2% for male candidates.

This ratio increased over time, reaching parity between the sexes between 2013 and 2022. In contrast, the gender parity in the candidate pool has decreased in 2023, with male candidates comprising 51.3 percent and female candidates comprising 48.70 percent.

Njeng’ere expressed gratitude to the 28,533 KCPE center managers who, notwithstanding the inclement weather conditions that plagued certain regions of the country, ensured that KCPE and KPSEA examinations and assessments ran smoothly in the centers.

Furthermore, he expressed his gratitude to the 5,692 examiners who assessed the compositions in Kiswahili Insha, Kenyan sign language, and English; they were also honored.
