Competency based Curriculum (CBC) was introduced in Kenya in 2019 and its aim is to train children to be creative and find solutions to problems on their own.
The coming of CBC in to the education sector has attracted many reactions between teachers and Teachers Service Commission (TSC) on how teachers will be trained to be conversant with the new curriculum.
CBC have faced a tough challenge in its implementation as many parents are complaining while others going to Court to challenge the ministry of education.
The coming of CBC has influenced the academic progress of students studying education courses in various universities and colleges as it came up with new requirements which many students and education graduates may not have.
If the CBC will be well implemented fully,for a person to be employed he or she needs to have done three teaching subjects of which majority now have done only two ,they have to do a post graduate diploma in education which be tiresome and expensive for students to go back to schools and study after graduating.
