The Council has at the same time barred examiners who are at a high risk of contracting the Corona Virus from reporting to this year’s marking exercise.
Expectant mothers and those who are currently breastfeeding will not be allowed to report to the marking centers this year.
“Examiners who are breastfeeding are advised not to report for marking since KNEC does not make any arrangement for babies and their helpers. In addition, marking is strictly residential and therefore such examiners will not be allowed to commute from outside.
Examiners are encouraged to defer marking until when their babies are old enough to be left behind at home.
Expectant examiners are equally advised to defer marking for their own safety due to heavy tasks involved until such a time when they can report after delivery and breastfeeding.” Directs Dr. Njeng’ere.Here are the latest Knec Payment Rates for KCSE Examiners- Markers
Current and Newly Proposed KCPE and KCSE Knec Payment Rates for Knec contracted Professionals and Examiners 2022
The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, Kuppet, proposes the following Knec payment rates for both KCSE and KCPE Examiners contracted by the council for the 2022 marking exercise; compare the current Knec payment rates with what Kuppet is demanding for this year.
Worth noting is the fact that despite teachers downing their tools in 2019 and 2021, and Kuppet demanding for a flat rate of Kshs 100 per script for all papers, Knec gave teachers a pittance-Kshs 2 Increment per script. Will Kuppet’s proposal and tough talk have any impact?
KUPPET argues that Chemistry Paper 1, Mathematics and English Paper 1 should each be paid at not less than sh 100.
Presently, marking each paper attracts between Sh51 to Sh58.
Allowances for Teachers handling Knec KCSE practicals
“Science teachers (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) need to be considered for allowances during practical. Other practical subjects like Agriculture, Building & Construction, Music and Home Sciences should be considered too,” notes Kuppet.Knec Pay rise for Invigilators, Supervisors and centre managers 2022

The union also wants school heads, also known as centre managers allowance, which is presently Sh500, to be reviewed upwards.
Presently, primary school head teachers are paid a flat rate of Sh500 for the three days they oversee the administration of KCPE.
KCPE supervisors earn Sh2,485 while invigilators take home Sh1,615. Security officers are paid 1,050 while drivers
