Why Competency Based Curriculum, (CBC) Will Benefit Kenyans.

The Kenyan government is in the process of implementin the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) to replace the much-criticized 8-4-4 system.


The system aims to inculcate dynamic values and instill virtues to help us flourish in our daily activities. The 8-4-4 was a teacher-based system, where the teacher was at the center of learning. This will not be the case anymore. The CBC aims to be a more student-based system, with more focus on the ability of the student to self- learn and develop relevant skills requisite for any engagement carried out. This way of thinking is perhaps informed by the opening up of the world, which has been spurred by the internet explosion.

With this, the pressure for academic performance will be eased. However, there will be more focus on the specific skills for each individual student and the unique abilities of students. Generally speaking, it will give a chance to everyone, not only those endowed academically. This will be done in an environment of freedom and responsibility.
