CBC to retool 56000 JSS teachers next

56,000 junior secondary school (JSS) teachers will receive training in the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) and Competency-Based Assessment (CBA) beginning the following week. During the World Teachers’ Day ceremony hosted at the Kenya School of Government in Nairobi, Nancy Macharia, CEO of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), praised teachers for their commitment to both CBC compliance and their normal teaching responsibilities.

It is important to note that this retooling will only apply to newly hired junior secondary school teachers; it will not apply to those making the move from primary schools. The TSC designated teachers of a variety of areas, including language, science, math, humanities, and technical courses, for this training in a memo dated September 26.

The training sessions will take place in Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) and selected county venues. The training for Grade 7 teachers is slated for October 9–October 13, 2023, and Master Trainers and Trainers of Trainers (TOTs) will have had training beforehand. From October 2 through October 4, Master Trainers from several educational institutions started their training at the Kenya Institute of Special Education.

The TOTs, which are comprised of TSC Subcounty Directors, Curriculum Support Officers (CSOs), Teacher Educators (Tutors), and Ministry of Education Quality Assurance Officers, will thereafter be trained by these Master Trainers.

Face-to-face interaction will be used for all training sessions. This training program runs concurrently with the TSC’s late August and early  September placement of 18,000 intern teachers to junior secondary schools.

Additionally, students in Grade 7 are getting ready for the national writing  assessments that will begin in October and run from October 2 through October  26, 2023. Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Agriculture, Social Studies, Visual and Performing  Arts, CRE/IRE/HRE, Science and Technology, Kenyan Sign Language, Integrated  Science, Computer Studies, Business Studies, Life Skills Education, and Pre-Technical and Pre-Career Education are among the subjects that are assessed in both mandatory  and optional courses.
