According to the employer, TSC, CBC, Competency Based Curriculum, has trained 228,000 primary school teachers.
Also take note that the KICD has already created the curriculum for students in grades one through ten.
Prof. George Magoha, the cabinet secretary for education, has defended the worries since the introduction of junior secondary school, which consists of grades 7 and 8, requires fresh manpower.
Teachers will be in charge of the incoming seventh grade, according to Magoha, and they have already completed a training program.
Also take note of the fact that the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development made sure the designs for the first through ninth grades of the syllabus were completed.
Students who pass this year’s sixth-grade tests will move on to junior secondary school.
The New CBC will be the 2-6-3-3-3 CBC system’s game-changers.
However, with the implementation of this new initiative, several elementary school teachers’ once-bright hope has dimmed.
This is so that, in accordance with the TSC, only teachers who earned a C+ or better on their KCSE exam could be assigned to junior secondary schools.
This is happening at a time when the TSC decided that only trained teachers and those with KCSE exam scores of C+ or higher will be assigned to junior secondary schools.
As a result, P1 instructors who received a C (plain) on the KCSE will not be allowed to work in the junior secondary.
The argument over which teachers will teach students who will enroll in junior secondary schools in Grades 7, 8, and 9 has thus been resolved.
Thousands of primary school teachers with various higher academic credentials were first given hope by the commission, but with the release of the Career Progression Guidelines, many were unable to gain promotions (CPG).
Primary school teachers with the following qualifications;
~Diploma and Degree in Special Needs Education
~Diploma and Degree in Early Childhood Development Education
~Diploma and Degree in Education (Primary option)
~Diploma in Education (Secondary option)
~Degree in Education (Secondary option) but lacking C+ at KCSE or C+ in teaching subjects
