Competency Based Curriculum is a new system of education in Kenya. It was launched by the ministry of education in 2017. CBC emphasizes on the development of skills and knowledge and the application of those skills in real life.
The Competency based curriculum is divided into three different levels; Early Years Education, Middle School Education and the Senior School Education.
