KEY TAKEAWAYS


For both courses for holders of a KCSE certificate, the new admission grade has been raised from C-(minus) to C(plain), with C(plain) in English or Kiswahili, Mathematics, and any Humanity and a Science.


The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has started the process of selecting center managers, supervisors, and invigilators to help administer this year’s Teacher Education Examinations, which will take place between July 4 and July 27.

The examinations board has asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for assistance in finding teachers who can fill essential positions during the administration of the first CBC certification tests.

TSC advised all of its sub-county directors to identify and nominate the exam officials and further vet them before deploying them to the KNEC Contracted Professionals (CP2) System in a circular signed by Secretary and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Nancy Macharia

The Primary Teacher Education (PTE) tests will begin on July 4th and finish on July 13th, 2022, according to the Circular. The Teacher Certificate in Adult Education (TCAE), on the other hand, will begin on July 4th and expire on July 6th, 2022.

There will be 151 invigilators and 110 supervisors at PTE colleges and test centers, whereas there will be 74 invigilators and 22 supervisors at SNE institutions.

There are 18 Diploma Teacher Education Colleges with a total of 889 applicants who will be supervised by 50 invigilators and 20 supervisors. A

round 976 invigilators and 443 supervisors will be assigned to the 443 ECDE colleges and examination centers, while 7 supervisors and 16 invigilators will be assigned to the 7 TCAE institutions.

The former Primary Teacher Education Certificate (PTE), formerly known as the P1 Certificate, has undergone a name change to Primary Teacher Education Diploma (DPTE), which is primarily designed to prepare teacher candidates to teach the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) following graduation.

Since the tutors will properly guide the teacher trainees to embrace the shift from the Objective-Based to the CBC, which is based on the use of learner-centered methodologies for the realization of expected outcomes, TTCs are expected to ensure that the teacher trainees receive the proper training and professional development, which will accord them an opportunity to engage in research.

For both courses for holders of a KCSE certificate, the new admission grade has been raised from C-(minus) to C(plain), with C(plain) in English or Kiswahili, Mathematics, and any Humanity and a Science.

This is a change from the former standard, where only those with a mean grade of C-(minus) were taken immediately without any subject-specific requirements.

However, in the nationwide hiring process that has begun, candidates with impairments and those with a mean KCSE grade of C-(minus) will be given preference.

In contrast to the previous curriculum, which required only two years of study, the new curriculum requires three years of college for teacher candidates, as well as a three-month micro-teaching course that will also be required of DECTE candidates.

The primary goals of CBC are to broaden learners’ knowledge, experiences, and imaginative understandings as well as to foster moral values for lifelong learning. As a result, training the tutors was necessary so that they could guide the first cohort of Diploma teachers.

The CBC task force claims that pre-service Competency-Based Teacher Education (CBTE) will give the educational community a significant chance to train teachers in the CBC methodology.

The task force advised that the education ministry make sure that all instructors in pre-service teacher education training colleges are trained in the proper interpretation and application of the framework and designs of the teacher education curriculum.
