In Kenya, there are several learning institutions. These are: pre-primary schools, primary schools, secondary schools, collages and universities.
According to the data, there are over three hundred thousand teachers serving in both primary and secondary schools. A good number of these professionals are serving in primary schools due to the large number of primary schools available than secondary schools in Kenya. Some of these teachers are employed in private schools while some are also serving in public schools.
Teachers serving in private schools are usually paid by either individuals or organizations who own those schools while teachers teaching in public schools are usually paid by the government through Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is an independent body that is mandated by Kenyan constitution to employe, transfer, discipline, pay and promote qualified teachers to the next level. The commission is currently under the leadership of Dr Nancy Macharia who is currently CEO.
During president Uhuru Mwigai Kenyatta's regime, the new curriculum CBC was introduced to replace the old curriculum 8-4-4. The grade six candidates concluded their KPSEA on Wednesday and are now eagerly waiting to move to the next level, grade seven.
For the smooth transition of grade six learners to the next level, grade seven, Teachers Service Commission (TSC) through its boss Dr Nancy Macharia yesterday made a bold announcement that teachers will be required to go for a mandatory training on how to handle the grade seven learners come next year 2023.
This means that teachers may start their training before 23rd January 2023. This is when schools are scheduled to reopen for the first term of 2023.
