Why P1 Trained Teachers Should Be Excited

With the introduction of new curriculum in Kenya.The government revised the qualifications for joining teachers colleges in Kenya.Formerly,it took two years of training for primary teachers and for one qualify to teach in any school,he or should have acquired a p1 teacher certificate that is awarded at the end of the two year course.

Currently,plans are underway to admit the first cohort of new primary teacher trainees.The minimum qualifications are a little bit higher compared to former intakes.Although the general kcse grade remains C plain in kcse, candidates must also attain a C plain in Maths,English,kiswahili and one of the three sciences either biology, chemistry or physics.

This has seen a large number of applicants not being able to achieve the set requirements set by the ministry.This means that only a few teachers be trained under the training regime.

This sounds a good news to the newly trained teachers who are desperate for tsc employment.This includes p1 teacher who are not yet absorbed by the teachers service commission.

Its important to note that there is currently a large number of trained teachers but not employed.

Do you think it's a good move by the government? What is your opinion?
